New Strategies for Art Mediation and on the Art Market With a comprehensive panel discussion programme in the context of the >VIENNAFAIR 2009< departure wirtschaft kunst und kultur gmbh will deal with current issues galleries and museums or art associations alike are facing in the current economic situation. In the top-flight panel discussions current trends in art and Vienna as the venue of innovative cultural productions are debated.

A special programme highlight here will be the panel discussion with the title “All Art Isn’t Global Yet”. The New York Times art critic, Michael Kimmelman, will take a look at the relevance of still existing regional trends in a seemingly globalized art together with the Russian curator Victor Misiano and Iwona Blazwick, director of Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, manager of departure wirtschaft, kunst and kultur gmbh in Vienna and Simon Rees, chief curator of the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius, will act as moderators of this interesting panel discussions.
