Within the framework of the 11th international MitOst-Festival in October 2013 in Leipzig, we would like to invite you to a symposium for professionals in the field of contemporary art mediation. This will include panels, guided tours, a public talk about ideas of art mediation focused on art interventions in public spaces and will set up at GfZK (Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig (Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst)) and the independent art centre HALLE 14. In different panels participants discuss and exchange their experiences and opinion on various ways of art mediation, challenges and international experiences. Professionals from Leipzig and Cairo will give impulse talks, and an art intervention by Associació Cultural TripleZeta [zzz] from Spain will be presented. The exchange focusses on the mediation of contemporary art.
