Jubilee en State of the Arts (SOTA) present:
Preserving art and heritage: a question of ownership?
Reading room and discussion proposed by Jubilee within the framework of the Fair Arts Almanac session for State of the Arts (SOTA).
This session has two main topics:
This gathering takes place at Kunsthal Gent, parallel to the project GHENT: HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER by Grace Ndiritu in collaboration with Jubilee. It is no coincidence we propose to meet here as the Carmelite monastry embodies the question of how we’ve been dealing with questions of heritage preservation and property up until today.
Participants can also sign up for the public evening debate: Commoning, Property Law and Indigenous Land Rights in the Belgian Context, the fifth and final event in the context of GHENT: HOW TO LIVE TOGETHER.

State Of The Arts (SOTA) is an open platform reimagining the art world today. SOTA believes the transition of an art world towards a fairer one can also serve as a catalyst for genuine change in society at large.
Since 2014 SOTA has discussed Fair Practice in the Arts along five different axes: solidarity, diversity, transparency, ecology and ‘relationality’ (trust). It is clear that these different aspects of fairness are deeply intertwined. Fairness deserves a constant, situated and societal debate. That is why SOTA developed the Fair Arts Almanac as a common tool at the heart of its activities.
The almanac 2022 will be created during a series of preparatory events. Throughout 2021, these events will take place on a monthly basis, always at different locations, about different topics and prepared by different groups – and are open to questions that live among practitioners these days, taking the sensibilities of the various seasons into account.
