A €56 billion turnover worldwide, more than 38 million transactions – these 2015 figures illustrate the global importance of the art market today. Nevertheless, this sector has hitherto lacked a forum, at which specialists, collectors and all other market players can exchange views and debate visions and new developments in the market.
From 2017, this forum will exist: Art. Talking Business.
At Pariser Platz – in the heart of the art metropolis of Berlin – art professionals from all over the world will gather to discuss topical issues and innovative ideas concerning the market. The forum will create a platform for entrepreneurs and market actors with a creative and innovative mindset to explore opportunities and dive into cutting-edge research on latest developments. Art. Talking Business. aims to reach beyond the question ‘What makes the art industry move today?’, to shape the way it will move tomorrow.
The focal point of Art. Talking Business. will be a high-profile conference, supplemented by network meetings, keynote lectures, discussion panels and personal exchange opportunities. Engaging with some of the brightest minds in the industry will provide stimuli for further thinking. Participants are invited to actively contribute, and even steer, discussions to raise and develop latent capabilities of global and domestic art markets. After all, Art. Talking Business. is not simply about absorbing information but to talk ideas through with fellow experts, i.e. ‘talking business’.
Art. Talking Business. will highlight future models of production, presentation and international trade, while addressing associated legal, tax and insurance issues. The spectrum of diverse specialist subjects offered will create a worldwide unique cluster of competence and audience groups.
Year on year a fixed date in the calendar of art professionals
This Forum creates a stage for exchange – networking opportunities will be virtually unlimited.
