Conformation and confrontation: countour of the new intermediary


On Wednesday 28th November there will be the seventh edition of LOKO (national discussion about art made by order) at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam.

This year LOKO will be about the position of the advisor of art in the public domain.
In contrast to previous editions where art was central LOKO will now be about the advisor. In the turbulent power field between art and society this position constantly changes. What should happen to the expertise of the intermediary in the long run? Which opportunities and obstacles are there for the advisor in the public space? What status does an advice have? Where do the possibilities lie to generate projects? What different (or new) roles do advisors/intermediaries have between the artists and the principals?

We are going to reestablish the position of the intermediary and we would like the (expert) public to contribute by thinking and discussing with us.
