Moderated by Anupama Sekhar, Director, Culture Department, Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF)
In our first webinar, we talk to two renowned curators about the shifts in cultural practice brought about by the pandemic & the future role of art in our societies. The conversation hopes to address some of the pressing issues of our times: how is the cultural sector managing this emergency situation? Is there a spirit of solidarity? How will the pandemic affect the financing of culture in the coming years? What will cultural exchange look like in the next 3-5 years?
