After a one and a half hour drive by car from Beijing’s city centre to the south the many skyscrapers and blocks begin to clear. The end of the city isn’t reached, but instead another micro cosmos which is not part of the everyday life in the Chinese capital: Abandoned, decayed buildings and curious looks mark the way to the artist Dai Chenlian. His studio lays in this remote part of the city where proper administration by the government doesn’t exist anymore.
THE ARTS+ is a one day conference and five day fair on The Business of Creativity. It will kick off 19-23 October 2016 in Frankfurt/Main and will be the annual event for the international cultural economy. Among confirmed speakers are legendary artist David Hockney, bestselling-author Jeff Jarvis (What would Google Do?), MIT’s Carlo Ratti or Annie Luo from the World Economic Forum.
Age of Artists is presenting during the first morning when THE ARTS+ starts with an Espresso which is brief and stimulating – and anything but black: Everyday up to five candidates working at the intersection of creativity and technology will present their innovative concepts, projects and ideas within a dynamic relay on THE ARTS+ RUNWAY.
