2#: BITE THE HAND THAT TRIES TO FEED YOU
For the second episode, we will be live discussing if the private fundings being injected into the public art sector are changing the art scene, and in particular how artists and art institutions operate within this new context.
Recent examples such as Fredriksen sisters at National Museum, Tangen at Kunstsilo or Stein-Erik Hagen sponsoring the Munch Museum have raised concerns and media scrutiny.
New funding systems within the Norwegian Art Council such as Kreativ Næring, Talent Norge or Innovasjon Norge have also been noticed, but it is yet very unclear to whom these grants are made for.
Are we witnessing a shift of ideology or are these constellations necessary to sustain the future of artistic practice?
Our guests will be announced soon.
