Essays | TG Grantees 2013 by Han Nefkens Foundation

In order to promote the reflection on the art system, and particularly on galleries and related practices, the Han Nefkens Foundation and Talking Galleries offered several grants for students to cover the registration fees of the symposium. In return, the grant holders have written reports/critical essays on the session – lecture, discussion panel or case study – that most interested them. They have focused on topics such as the relevance of the art galleries, economical and cultural values and non profit art spaces, among others. Along with the Han Nefkens Foundation the following 4 essays were chosen as they may contribute to enrich the debates started at the symposium.
