SALTS – Basel
This public event, which brings together leaders of independent structures, artists and independent exhibition curators, aims to question the “independent” status today in 2017. How does an independent structure / independent status work? Germany, Switzerland, France? What are the links and strategies of relations with the communities of the territory? It will be a question of exchanging on the following points – statutes, financings, networks, collaborations, of a form of complementarity or not with the institutions (private – public), transmission, education – and to think of this activity / practice in its western European dimension.
The exchange will take the form of a discussion around a breakfast and will last between 1h30 and 2h.
This public event is part of “CURATORIAL FUTURES 2017”. CEA puts in place a global reflection on the new curatorial tendencies and their possible developments, taking the form of a series of trips, events and international meetings, linking France, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany. “CURATORIAL FUTURES 2017 – CH” is the first trip of this project.
