In continuation of the project set up in 2018, Thanks for Nothing is renewing its “Art & Engagement” symposium this year.

This second edition, scheduled for Friday, September 20, 2019, plans to welcome 500 people in an exceptional setting: the Auditorium du Louvre.

Developed with the participation of 5 students of Sciences Po within the framework of the collective projects, this event is built with the will to integrate the students in the process of global reflection, as well as in a concern of profe​ssionalisation.

Free and accessible to all, the aim of this conference is to think about the links between artistic practice and citizen action, by presenting innovative initiatives from committed actors in the world of art, academics and associations. The event brings together artists, gallerists, philosophers, journalists and association leaders among others.

Speakers:

  • Boris Bergmann, writer
  • Jean-Michel Othoniel, artist in conversation with Michel Simon, President Link Endowment Fund
  • Markus Reymann, director TBA21
  • Tomas Saraceno, artist in conversation with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, curator

  • Augustin Trapenard, journalist and sponsor of Bibliothèque sans frontier in conversation with Jérémy Lachal, director and co-founder Bibliothèque sans frontière
