Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and La Gaîté Lyrique organized a two-day international symposium in Paris on 6 and 7 February 2020 under the motto “Towards a new cultural policy for the digital age.” The aim was to rethink cultural policy in the digital age. How can we update our cultural policy? How can the involvement of art and its diversity be improved in an era of algorithms, apps and search engine monopolies? What are new economic models for artists in the age of streaming? Which innovations are possible in and around universities or companies? How can art education be promoted in an age of MOOCs?
The symposium involved 30 international researchers, startuppers, artists and PhD students.
