Does the art market shape the aesthetics of contemporary art?
The influence of today's art market on art production seems ubiquitous. And yet the trade in art is a form of social debate with it and thus an essential condition of its existence. The Bucerius Art Forum is currently showing the exhibition "The Birth of the Art Market. Rembrandt, Ruisdael, van Goyen and the artists of the Golden Age", whose director Franz Wilhelm Kaiser conceived as a historical analogy to today's art market. Since the "Golden Age" of the Netherlands in the 17th century, the art market has had a great influence on techniques, representations and themes of art. How does this influence the art production today?
On Saturday Prof. Dr. Franz Wilhelm Kaiser (Director of the Bucerius Kunst Forum) and Sebastian Preuss (Vice editor-in-chief of WELTKUNST) will talk with Dr. Anna Schwan about this exhibition and the functioning of today's art market as well as about what we can learn from history.
Saturday 18 November, 3pm
*The Art Talk will take place at the Bar.

MILLERNTOR GALLERY X ABSOLUT BAR
We believe in the good cause and are excited about having Millerntor Gallery as our Sponsor Partner for the fourth time. In its role as a social business the Millerntor Gallery supports the work and water projects of Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V.
Every year, the Millerntor Stadium turns into an open platform for dialogue and exchange on a local, international and intercultural level. Artworks of various genres as well as a diverse musical, cultural and educational program reflect the different ways in which everyone can positively change the world. Musicians and cultural activists donate their pay for clean water and by that, make the festival a social event. Loyal to the urban motto, Millerntor Gallery designs a bar together with Absolut Vodka at the Affordable Art Fair - Cheers!
