miart – international modern and contemporary art fair of Milan announces the complete list of speakers of the new edition of miartalks, realized for the third consecutive year under the artistic direction of Alessandro Rabottini and in collaboration with In Between Art Film, the production company founded by Beatrice Bulgari in order to support artist’s films and experimental videos.

Brought together under the title What Can We Imagine? the miartalks 2018 will explore imagination as an essential force that creates and transforms reality, rather than as a form of escape from the present. Together with our speakers, we will explore the individual and collective boundaries of imagination, we will question “where” is it possible to imagine; how art can be a space of social transformation; how imagination can become a daily exercise of emancipation and, finally, what can we imagine for a future that is already here?
