Brussels Cultural Venue
on 19 March 2012.
The debate hinged on a question: ‘Politics, economics and culture: a different balance?’
Each of the three speakers hails from one of these three spheres, with some overlap.
Charles Esche is a curator and museum director (of Eindhoven’s Van Abbemuseum)
whose cultural work is infused with political urgency;
Judith Marquand is an economist who argues for the artistry of that discipline;
and Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi is a media activist who has launched or contributed to many cutting-edge media outlets, including a pirate radio station.
It was moderated by leading Dutch journalist, Frénk van der Linden.
