Public and private funding for contemporary art seem
to be more and more interconnected. Especially with
regards to the geopolitical focusses of the conference
- on the one hand South-EastEurope, on the other the
"Alpine-Adriatic" region - money flows in
the art field are said to follow the logic of "public-private
partnership". Nevertheless this is often a relationship
of mutual competition and exclusion, where a further
distinction of the respective mechanisms, functions
and effects of private and public funding is imperative.
