A symposium jointly organized by la Biennale di Venezia and the European Commission.

The symposium is in English language.




An intensive and fruitful dialogue of science, technology and industry with Art has been emerging over the last decades. Art institutions worldwide engage with science and technology. Art institutions explore how the artist reflect/refuse/analyze/are inspired by and inspire science and technology. In turn, high tech industry and high profile science institutions set up programs that allow them to establish a dialogue with the Art world that will help them to better reflect on their own thoughts processes and priorities.


The European Commission has engaged into such a dialogue via its STARTS – S&T & ARTS2 – program that bridges between art and innovation.

In this symposium, participants will explore how this dialogue could be intensified and what would be practical ways of setting it up both in Art institutions and in research and developments teams in industry and academia.


What will be the impact of this dialogue on artistic creation?

What will be the impact of this dialogue on innovation in society and industry?

How will such a dialogue renew artistic practice, how will it renew technological and scientific practices?


Wednesday, November 4th, at the end of the symposium, la Biennale di Venezia will be glad to provide participants with a free guided tour at “All the World’s Futures”, the 56. International Art Exhibition (only for Giardini venue).

In order to attend the guide tour, participants can buy the entrance ticket to the exhibition with a special 20% discount over the full price ticket.
