Another art world: Art Communism and Artificial Scarcity

Event date: November 28 / 2023

On November 28 Nika Dubrovsky will give a lecture at the Staedelschule.

The lecture is based on a text that Nika Dubrovsky wrote with her late husband, David Graeber, which analyzed the current state of the Art World, where the promise of liberation is immediately replaced by a structure of exclusion. But much more importantly, this text analyzed alternative possibilities for the existence of art that we could build together and that already exist. Starting with the ambiguous legacy of Romanticism, Graeber and Dubrovsky explore the notion of everyday communism and the possibility of a world in which everyone is an artist.

The lecture will be facilitated by the Staedelschule on November 28 at 19:00 and more information can be found here.
