During lectures, workshops, debates and other activities with international reputable academics and artists (or artists’ collectives) like Åbäke, Nico Dockx, Pascal Gielen, Erik Hagoort, Thomas Hirschhorn, Hotel Charleroi, Isabell Lorey, Oda Projesi, Tara Cranswick, Emma Rushton & Derek Tyman, Gerald Raunig and Raqs Media Collective strategies and structures will be examined that are (and can be) used to maintain the artist’s artistic autonomy.
