The "UNLOCK" conference format of ZEITmagazin decodes the future of the creative industry in the fields of art, film, fashion and music. Following "UNLOCK Style by ZEITmagazin" in the context of the Berlin Fashion Week, "UNLOCK Art by ZEITmagazin" should be conceived of as a door opener for new spaces for art.
