“Politics, economics and culture, a different balance?”

Brussels Cultural Venue 
"The EGG" 
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.
