Inspired by, and in the context of, the exhibition Sitzung by designer Martino Gamper on view in the Mittelhalle of Haus der Kunst, this discussion aims to redefine contemporary art and design and explore the historical perspectives and fluid barriers between the multiple facets of both disciplines. The participants will explore theories and philosophies, and discuss strategies for showcasing interdisciplinarity in cultural institutions, and fostering cooperation between the fields.

The talk also delves into cross-institutional collaboration, potential synergies between western and nonwestern knowledge bases, and new challenges such as digital interdisciplinarity. Taking a cross-European perspective as a point of departure, the discussion aims to provide valuable insights into culture’s global dynamics, now and in the future.

With Andrea Lissoni (Artistic Director, Haus der Kunst), Flaka Haliti (Artist), Marco Sammicheli (Director, Museo del Design Italiano), Martino Gamper (Designer), Stefan Diez (Designer and Professor)


The event is organised by Haus der Kunst and nomad magazine.
