Fair International Cultural Cooperation – Language.

An expert meeting on how international cultural cooperation can be organised in a way that is fair with respect to (differences in) language

Boom Chicago

This programme is part of the festival Forum on European Culture, 17 – 20 September in Amsterdam.

Experts gather to address cultural differences and inequalities that arise from the use of language when cooperating internationally. The aim is to promote international cultural collaborations in a manner that recognises different working modalities and acknowledges unequal systems while promoting mutual respect across cultural differences.

The gathering covers ethical as well as practical questions. The discussions are supported by a keynote from Rasmus Nilausen, a Danish born Barcelona based painter who deals with painting as yet another language to be translated, deciphered and most likely misunderstood. The findings will be bundled in a report to be published after the meeting.

This is a closed event. Participants have been selected via an Open Call.
