While parts of the art world keep digitalization at a distance, or fumble how to take advantage of new technologies, other parts have long been exploring the possibilities of it. Some artists are using forefront technologies to translate their vision into new digital mediums, and devices of different kinds are more often becoming natural part of creative processes. In this panel talk, we will meet four prominent players on the Swedish art scene to discuss where the art world is positioned today in relation to the digital development. How does digitalization challenge and/or open up for new possibilities for artists and institutions? Is digitalization chiefly a tool for democratization or exclusion?
