Art in a public space – summary of day 1

The first day of Art Line conference Art in a public space – festival or not? presented five devoted and interesting speakers. Martin Schibli, Dominik Lejman, Michał Bieniek, Kuba Szreder and Michaela Crimmin, from different countries with a variety of thoughts on the concept of art and – not in the least – on the concept of public space!

The day ended with a Roundtable Discussion with all five participants.

Sound has been recorded from the speeches and will be published at a later time. As of now we have pictures – and an exclusive eight minute interview with artist Dominik Lejman, who among other things say that artists should be just as respected for their professionals skills as, say, a doctor or a lawyer.

Listen to the interview with Dominik Lejman!
