The Artist as Consultant
16.07.20 - 24.09.20
A global pandemic, wide-spread racial injustices at boiling point and unfair cultural systems that need urgently addressing - how can the arts contribute to rebuilding this world, pulling us out of the times we are living through and give hope for a better world where all is not lost?
E-WERK Luckenwalde presents The Artist as Consultant: a digital conversation platform which aims to contribute to restructuring a top-down art world system that places artists below curators, directors and other ‘stakeholders’. This programme invites artists to personally consult and hold cultural practitioners accountable for deep-rooted hierarchies in our industry.
Each episode invites a contemporary artist to consult on themes which are pertinent to 2020, but are also key tenets of E-WERK’s mission and vision, such as autonomy, sustainability and ethical responsibility in arts making, the climate emergency and a fairer, more democratic art market.
From 16 July at 7pm CET (6pm BST), episodes will be released fortnightly via the E-WERK website and Instagram (@ewerk_luckenwalde).
