State and Market. ‘Cultural interest’ between publishing and cinema.
A study day on funding of cultural products,
Luigi Einaudi Campus, Sala Lauree Blu Grande | Lungo Dora Siena 100, Turin
‘Cultural Interest’ is the category that allows access, in the cinematographic sphere, to ministerial funds for cultural products. But is support for culture really a guarantee of freedom of expression, untied from the tastes of the masses and patronage? Do the major figures in the cultural market, for example Mondazzoli in the publishing sphere, actually swallow up all those small and independent entities that do research, sustain quality and constitute, in many aspects, expressions of the Avant-garde?
To reply to these and many other questions, on Monday 5 June from 3:00 pm at the Luigi Einaudi Campus of the University of Turin (in the room Sala Lauree Blu Grande), CEST is organising a meeting day with important representatives of the cultural world. This is an initiative to address the theme of public and private funding in the cultural sphere, to discuss some of the rationales that direct them, and the rôle played by the concept of ‘cultural interests’ in two key sectors: publishing and cinema.
