Artek celebrates its 75th anniversary this week. In the spirit of the farsighted founders, Artek wants to emphasize the role of cross-disciplinary thinking between science, art, architecture and design. As a statement for the future and for the celebration of its 75th anniversary, Artek will organize an international symposium.
Entitled “Alchemy of the Third Millennium”, the symposium will debate the role of the classical elements – earth, water, air and fire – in contemporary art, architecture and design. Among the presenters is Deyan Sudjic, Shigeru Ban and Amanda Levete. The symposium will be streamed live, so that you’ll have the possibility of attending the lectures on the web. The live stream starts October 14th at 10 am local time (GMT+2:00).
