AUDITORIUM OF THE LOUVRE MUSEUM

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.

  • Marine Van Schoonbeek, Thanks for Nothing President and co-founder
  • Boris Bergmann, writer
  • Tomàs Saraceno, artist in conversation with Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, curator
