Panel discussion in cooperation with the Kunsthistorisches Institut of the University of Cologne
The theme of digitalisation has repeatedly been a focus of interest for years, even in the art market.
Especially recently, new digital formats have been surfacing that appear to be providing competition for the previous analogue platforms for the mediation of art, such as galleries, but also art fairs. However, are online exhibitions or alternative sales platforms a threat to the classic art market, and possibly to the art fair format? Or can they be seen as complementing them?
Which digital channels are compatible for the future for art fairs and galleries in particular, and which are less productive? What is the present status quo in the debate between digital vs. analogue, and where are trends and developments heading in the 2020s? How can one summarise developments, and what does the forecast look like?
