on Art Commissions - Art in Public Spaces
Hosted by Deutsche Bank , Berlin
27 November 2018
After the success of the previous IACCCA symposium (International Symposium on Corporate Collections and Museums – Synergies and New Perspectives on Collabo- ration), which took place in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 2016, IACCCA’s 2018 symposium focused on the role and importance of site-specific commissions and art in public spaces.
The symposium brought together representatives of various sectors: from public, private and corporate commissioners, to artists and architects, to urban planners, as well as representatives of public interest groups. The Symposium provided an occasion to expand and enriched our ways of thinking and engaging with large-scale art commissions and art in public spaces, and as such, to improve collaboration and heighten the discussion of why and how we could and should integrate art into our environments as well as the role of public art today and its recent and potential future directions.
The day was organised in two sessions, each featuring speakers who were invited to present a 20-minute paper. Presentations were followed by a moderated debate among panel members, and a lively discussion opened up to audience participation.

Kasper König, Curator, Berlin, Germany
