OPENING TALK

The Value of Art: Novos Objectos

What is the value of art today?

PLUNC invites to a reflexion around this interrogation, starting with "The Value of Art" piece by Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau (2010), that adresses the value of attention.

Focusing on the Festival identity - New Media and Digital Arts - we propose an opening talk to debate these definitions, as potentially emancipatory or problematic, in the arts' market(s). How do theory and production, museum spaces and curatorship, convoke and coexist with these elements of a contemporary, technological and interactive art?

29 SET: 18H00 – 20H00 | Fundação Portuguesa das Comunicações, Museu das Comunicações | Free entrance

Chair: Nuno Correia
