Martina Marti. How Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Relate to Art

What do diversity, equality, and inclusion mean, and how can we integrate them into our everyday thinking and doing? How do these issues relate to art? Do we need them in the context of art, or do they clash with the idea of art as independent and universal? How do they relate to artistic freedom? The session aims at giving listeners a foundation on which they can build their understanding of the terms within the specificities of their work.
