Gluon Foundation (BE)
The Gluon Foundation fosters collaboration among artists and scientists. At Ars Electronica, they will present a new model for cooperation among artists, scientists and art collectors. This entails placing scientists-in-residence as staff members in the ateliers of top-name artists, with interested collectors acting as patrons of these cooperative efforts and thus being able to acquire the works that result from them.
To kick off this new initiative conceived by Christophe de Jaeger, Ars Electronica is hosting a round-table at which curator/art manager Hans Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Gallery, London) and Paul Dujardin (BOZAR, Brussels) converse with artists and scientists; chaired by Ars Electronica Artistic Director Gerfried Stocker.
Hosts: Hans Ulrich Obrist (CH), Paul Dujardin (BE)
Participants: Rachel Rose (US), Manthia Diawara (ML/US), Damian Ortega (MX), Jan de Cock (BE), Beatrice de Gelder (BE)
Chair: Gerfried Stocker (AT)
