10.30 - 11.30   Money or morals: Can art have both?

Venue: Private residence, Østerbro (limited capacity, rsvp essential at

12.30 – 1.30   Copyright, copyleft, copytheft
Is the notion of ownership still a relevant concept in an online world? If art is about ideas, can one own an idea?
Speakers: Daniel McClean, lawyer and consultant in art and cultural property law, Howard Kennedy, London; FOS, artist
Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

2.30 – 3.30   Art: Home of the alternative fact

Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

4.30-5.30   Artistic production is an open network?
The network age offers the promise of a utopian approach to design in which we are no longer mere consumers but participants in an open system. Open source design promises a world of exchange, independence and collaboration. But how realistic is it? And is the promise growing or fading?
Speakers: Thomas Lommée, co-founder of Intrastructures and creator of the Open Systems design; Adam Greenfield, author of Radical Technologies; Daisy Froud, architect and strategist

Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

12.30 – 1.30   Copy Culture
Is cultural identity something to live up to or escape? Do epithets such as ‘Scandinavian design’ still apply, and is it to be protected, copied or avoided?
Speakers: Sam Jacob, architect and professor at University of Illinois at Chicago; Asmund Havsteen-Mikkelsen, artist
Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

2.30 – 3.30   Is culture something you own or something you share?
Is cultural appropriation wrong and who should act as the gatekeepers of traditions and culture?
Speakers: Jonas Tinius, anthropologist, Humboldt Universität zu Berlin; Carla Zaccagnini, artist
Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg

4.30 – 5.30   Is virtual space real space?
Does it still make sense to differentiate between virtual space and physical space? And what does this mean for art and architecture?
Speakers: Beatrice Galilee, associate curator of architecture & design, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Ben Vickers, chief technology officer at the Serpentine Galleries, London, and initiator of unMonastery, Athens, Matera and Berlin
Venue: Kuppelsalen, Kunsthal Charlottenborg
