In January, I participated in the 8th annual conference of the Fachverband Kulturmanagement in Kufstein, Austria. I presented the 3Arts commissioned Matrix, Granting for Arts Organizations and Individuals seen from Artists’ Perspectives, and also created a new 3-Line Matrix based on the conference proceedings.
The theme was cultural funding, Dispositive der Kulturfinanzierung. The full title doesn’t translate easily. Dispositive refers to Foucault’s dispositif, translated into English as apparatus in Agamben’s What is an Apparatus? It sounds clunky: Apparatuses of Cultural Funding? The organizers chose Dispositions of Cultural Funding.
