October 10 - October 14
Artificial intelligence, blockchains, Augmented and Virtual Reality – these are just four of many digital developments that are increasingly permeating our everyday lives and form the basis of cultural Technologies and business models that seemed virtually unimaginable just a few years ago. At the same time, these technological innovations fundamentally call into question established production and distribution channels in all sectors of the economy. Last but not least, they also seem to intimidate a lot of people.
Disruption as opportunity
That’s why we feel that there are still many questions that need to be asked: What do these developments mean for the creative and cultural industries? What might future-proof business concepts look like? Which examples can teach us a thing or two? Where do potential threats to culture arise? The third edition of THE ARTS+, the creative business festival of the Frankfurter Buchmesse (10-14 October 2018), is once again dedicated to answering exactly these questions. To do so, we are engaging in a close exchange of ideas with exhibitors, speakers and partners from the cultural, technological, economic and political sectors – and are bringing these actors together.
