Débat d‘idées: What is “the future“? Can there be a future for our present age?
The conference attempts to approach the topic of the future from an in-terdisciplinary bird’s eye view. What are the key questions on the way to a diverse, sustainable, and digital society and in what way can a reframed industrial culture help to create answers and find solutions? Challenges and visions of the future will be identified to give stimuli for a rethought industrial culture.
11:50am-12:05am - Coffee break
12:10am-1:10pm - Talk: Project introduction FUTUR 21 - kunst industrie kultur and artist talk
What role can arts take in the reframing of industrial culture and what is the potential of an artistic view of the future? The curatorial team will introduce the contents and structure of FUTUR 21 and give an initial glimpse of the festival program. Subsequently, the artistic talk will focus on two best-practice examples which will be shown in two of the industrial museums as part of FUTUR 21 and will discuss how art, industry, and culture can stimulate each other in the future.
1:10pm-2:10pm - Lunch break
2:10pm-5:00pm - Panel 2
Industrial museums as engines of the future
Based on the impulses from the Débat d’idées, the outreach and sustainability of industrial museums will be questioned. Where is the focus between the poles of customer orientation and political education? Here, the ambivalence of regionality and internationality, universality and diversity, and the potential of analog and digital spaces will be critically examined in order to make use of them for a reframing of industrial culture.
