* The public discourse program is a key element of the ARTS CLUB BERLIN, committed to investigating recent developments, concepts and forms of practice in discourses of contemporary art. At the Invitation of the VBK curators, artists and scientists are asked to organize a discursive program that is internationally oriented yet at the same time retains a focus on the local context of Berlin.The program has a particular focus on different forms of artistic practices and their conditions of production. What is artistic practice today and what are its contexts? Taking this question as a point of departure, the public discourse program seeks to contextualise contemporary concepts of artistic practice within political, social and economic settings in open lectures and discussions with international artists, Kurators and representatives of non-artistic fields.
