THE ARTS+ 2016 – Take a look at last year’s programme 

How does creative content develop into efficient business models in the age of digitalisation? Why are robots and computers becoming an increasingly creative force in the arts and how may they change the cultural industries?

Questions like these were at the core of the first edition of THE ARTS+ in 2016. From the legendary artist David Hockney with his large-format book SUMO to 3D printing and virtual reality – the programme offered something for every taste.
