Ideas Agora

Today we ask you to jam in a different way: you can open yourself a brand new discussion to share your ideas or join already open discussions below.

The focus:

We, the people of culture, let our fragmentation reduce our impact on society.
What is the first thing we need to do to reverse this trend? To become a "we"?

Since the publication of THE FUTURE OF AN ILLUSION in 1927, it is hard to believe in the WE formulated in the Jamm'Art question ; in the meantime, we are stuck in a togetherness ; a possible synthesis could be inspired by some European artists :

From Zweig, Diderot, Gombrowicz, Wilde, Kundera, Sloterdijk, etc, we can remember :

- the need to escape the WE of a society in order to enjoy an internal space for art : "fragmentation" in other words is a basic need ;

- the massive impact on society that have an artistic creation is never predictable ;

- you certainly do not need a policy of culture to have an artistic activity but you need private money : to be bought your creation by a wealthy investor (Renaissance yesterday, Pinault today), to be published by wealthy editors, to have a public in concert, ..., and to have a second day-job to pay your bills.

  • Maybe it helps to understand and see and apply as a concept the difference between fragmentation (which could be conncected to the system of violence as a result of violence, something we see depicted in Goya and his first representation of how a bomb destroys a space) and diversity (which is a vital strategy born out of diversification strategies devoted to replicate contingent chances for alternnative developments?

"Márton HAJDU: promising this idea; we go back to the "how to spread", same way as other EU programs are announced and spread?

I tend to believe more in that option, than TV-vote, despite agreeing with much Tamer Levent said.
However, we all also kn…"

"The hierarchy has changed. We now all have a share in each of those 3 roles - community, artist, professional- in varying degrees. But embarrassment or ridicule is still often more comfortable than experimenting with this new situation.

"Thanks! Ideas on how to engage/get artists, cultural operators more interested in such discussions? Or you want to say that the debate in itself was not relevant? Also, could you elaborate on "European citizenship classes"?"
