On the 29th November 2018 Nicole Bachmann, Søren Berner, Mayo Bucher and Annette von Spesshardt Portatius assembled to debate the motion: The artist is an engine of social change.
Speaking for the motion Berner and Portatius were passionate in their defence of the active, effective artist. Artists effect social change - and not only that, cannot avoid doing so.
Thus it continued in a heated fashion, though ultimately Bucher and Bachmann won the public vote. Very warm thanks to the participants and to the audience who came on a busy Zurich evening during Kunstszene: Zürich.
