A public discussion
Cultural politics follow both national and international developments and trends. In some cases, such national decisions of the utterly problematic kind are taken that are obviously intended rather to install so called stability, and most of all: control. There are, however, many regulations at work from which numerous are on the national level. What has to be considered and can be done to keep a specific national cultural policy in the loop of international discourse? Is the privatization of the cultural field the only solution? Where can we find parallels or differences regarding the various developments in state cultural politics across Europe? With the participation of Catherine Hug, curator, Kunsthalle Wien; Nicolaus Schafhausen, director, Kunsthalle Wien, and Barnabas Bencsik, director, Ludwig Museum. Moderated by janos Szoboszlai, Head of Department of Art Theory and Curatorial Studies, Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts.
