Is digital art better than physical art

What will the art of the future bring?

On the threshold of a new decade, we take a look into the future of the art world in our first live podcast: How digital is art going to be? What role do museums and artists play in society? And how do we design the city?

Even if it is difficult to predict the future, oracles and spinning around are fun, especially with the interesting guests on the Monopoly podcast. With the curator Tina Sauerländer and monopoly editor Silke Hohmann speaks Sara Steinert first about the digitization of art. Tina Sauerländer has specialized in artistic VR experiences. With peertospace she curates exhibitions with digital art for different locations, physical as well as pure online exhibitions.

Even if many established artists have long been using VR for themselves, there is still a lot of ignorance in the industry. That is why Sauerländer established the Radiance VR platform to make VR art easier to find and accessible.

The future is likely to be not only more digital but also more globalized. The architect and design theorist Friedrich von Borries With this development increasingly sees cities as the most important living space, but also as a political unit. "City of the Future - Paths to Globalopolis" is the name of his new book, which he talks about in the Monopol podcast.

In the past episodes of the Monopoly podcast, things got very political over and over again. Whether in relation to sexuality, ethnicity or the environment, the impression often arises that artists are pioneers and avant-garde. But the picture also breaks again and again.

What role will art play in society in the future? And which ones to institutions such as museums? The art critic will discuss this in the live podcast Julia Voss and Monopol editor-in-chief Elke Buhr.
