art+argument @ 'This is the house that Jack built', 29th October 2013

Is art a luxury?

In the context of 
a temporary exhibition in a villa built in 1908
by Helmrinderknecht contemporary design gallery, Barbara Seiler Galerie and friends,

Nadja Baldini, Brigitte Dätwyler, Stefanie Herrmann and Stefan Wagner debate whether art is a luxury or a necessity.

Allenmoosstrasse 112, CH-8057 Zürich
(Tram 10/14 to Salersteig)

Four cultural experts in two opposing teams debate and discuss a motion that they have been assigned. Each participant has been given a position opposing or defending the motion, and each has five minutes to argue their case uninterrupted. Thereafter the speakers challenge each other, and the audience may in turn question the speakers. The event ends with a vote for the more persuasive team. 

This is a forum for discussing culture where the unspeakable may be said. Each speaker must play his or her assigned role, regardless of whether they agree or not. Speakers benefit from temporary immunity: what they say during the debate is not necessarily their opinion and they cannot be held to their word afterwards. 

Art + Argument is an itinerant event bringing together exciting minds from the Swiss art scene and beyond. To know more, write to aoiferosenmeyer (at)
