A Summit on Art, Science, and Civil Society

New Narratives 2: Thinking Economics Differently negotiates – in seminars, workshops, lectures, discussions, performances, and films—sociopolitical fields of conflict. One such issue is the question of alternatives to a primarily economically shaped concept of growth, and how this might be realized through criteria of a social and cultural nature oriented to the common good. For the second summit, we have invited Athena Athanasiou & Elena Tzelepis, Katya Sander & Simon Sheikh, and Boris Ondreička, among others, to each conceptualize a one-day thematic cluster and to discuss it with international guests and with local civil initiatives.

A project of Württembergischer Kunstverein in cooperation with Merz Akademie. With contributions from Prof. Dr. Katja Diefenbach, Prof. Peter Ott and Prof. Dr. David Quigley and many others.
