GLOBART Talk


To keep pace with the time, to discuss future topics with scientists and artists, is the core task of GLOBART. Where would you be better able to do so, than at such a historic place of new thinking, like the viennese secession.
This exclusive, top-class event is an annual venue for decision- makers, a place for interaction and inspiration.

This event series takes place in cooperation with the viennese secession and “Wittmannmoebel”.

ART CAN CHANGE THE WORLD – (EX) CHANGING PERSPECTIVES

The intense debate over the Greek financial crisis, which has been observed from only one point of view so far, made us want to see the predicament from a different perspective – one of art and science. Especially in a crisis like this, new spaces are created. Culture is what brings us new hope.
What is Europe? A cultural idea! We share cultural experiences. Beethoven isn’t German, Sokrates isn’t Greek and Mozart isn’t Austrian – everything they achieved, everything they thought is all the more impressive.




Speakers

“Culture can do anything – namely unite Europe,” says former finance minister of Greece Yanis Varoufakis. Together with his wife, Greek artist Danae Stratou, he founded the art platform Vital Space and wants to tear down the borders between art and politics.

Tomáš Sedláček and Oliver Tanzer will take a more psychological and economical point of view. In their book “Lilth und die Dämonen des Kapitals” (“Lilth and the demons of capital”) the two authors examine modern day economy crises.

Christoph Thun-Hohenstein is director of the MAK and an expert when it comes to the European Community. It was on his initiative that the Vienna Biennale took place last summer. The corresponding symposium, titled “Can art improve the world?” focuses on similar perspectives as the GLOBART Talk.

Meanwhile, Martin Fritz, curator, adviser and publicist, will host the evening and serve as a dialogue partner for these discussions.

Idea

The GLOBART Talks aim to form a series of interdisciplinary and sophisticated discussions in which new ideas for a successful lifestyle are introduced. All over the world, artists, philosophers, designers and ecologists try to find answers to the question what life could look like in the future. The most inspirational thinkers are then invited to the Vienna Secession in order to present their ideas.
