Dresden in Global Context (Dresden 27-29 Oct 05)

Strategies for the Future of Culture: Dresden in Global Context

Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden

October 27 ­ 29, 2005

Entitled Strategies for the Future of Culture: Dresden in Global Context,
this major conference takes place in a city celebrated for its historic
architecture and home to the Church of Our Lady, to be reconsecrated on
October 30, 2005 following one of the major restoration projects of our era.
Drawing from and celebrating Dresden, this conference will examine how
cultural creation, display, and preservation will evolve in the 21st
century.

Overarching themes include the impact of terrorism, increasing urbanism,
political instability, and ecological disasters on cultural institutions and
on the creation of new artistic works in all fields and media. Equal
scrutiny will be given to legal issues: preventing looting; legal ownership
of objects or sites versus the notion of stewardship; and the inevitable
legal ramifications and effects on cultural heritage of the increased cost
of protecting cultural property.

Speakers will address issues related to the presentation of the arts to a
diverse public, the preservation of objects, sites, and other forms of
cultural expression for future generations, and, in both general and
specific senses, the future of culture and the creation of art. Particular
attention will be paid to the sensitivities involved in different approaches
to the preservation and display of cultural and artistic works, and to the
complex relationship between presentation and audience reaction. Last,
mindful of the unequal distribution of resources for the creation,
perpetuation and preservation of the arts, we will also consider the
development of sustainable solutions to this challenging problem. We are
honored to thank the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden for their
invitation, gracious support, and invaluable advice and counsel.
We gratefully recognize The Exeter Group as the American Leadership
Supporter.

We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of ArtReview, Chubb Group of
Insurance Companies, College Art Association, Herrick, Feinstein LLP, Paula
K. Lazrus, Errol Morris, the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, The
Cultural Department of the City of Dresden, and Luke Welles.
