Episode 26 / VOICES ON ART – The VAN HORN Gallery Podcast / Bettina Steinbrügge, Director of Kunstverein in Hamburg, curator, writer, lecturer and teacher
January 2021, 31 min., Language: English
Bettina Steinbrügge tells us how she got fascinated by art as a school kid, how she travelled Europe as a teenager with Interrail and saw all Picasso Museums and how she thinks an institution in the current times in the 2021 Century has to change and rethink to contribute to an ever changing society. We talk about the need for care and empathy, economic and cultural thinking, the need for community and how the digital helps us to communicate and stay in touch with each other. She stresses the necessity to pose new questions and utters her wish that society and politics make a statement for the arts.
