UNESCO ResiliArt Debate: Current challenges of international cultural exchange

Panel Moderator for the Austrian Commisision for UNESCO ResiliArt Debate Current challenges of international cultural exchange

What shape will cultural exchange take, once international mobility is back to normal? Where do we see the barriers for artists from the so called Global South based in Austria? How do we imagine fair intercultural cooperation?

Three tandem panels :

  • Debating living and working conditions for “third-country” artists in Austria With Ramiro Wong (activist and artist) & Vasilena Gankovska (IG Bildende Kunst)
  • Debating the pandemic impact on cultural work in the Global South With Jumoke Sanwo (artist) & Melanie Zumbansen (Goethe-Institut, International Relief Fund 2020)
  • Debating artist mobility and travel restrictions With Sabine Kock (SMartAt Mobility) & Rio Rutzinger (Impulstanz)
