Our times have been defined by radical political shifts. They influence most of our society’s sectors, from technology to culture, and also have an impact on the economic situation, which has affected the buying behavior of institutions and collectors. So what factors are patrons and museums currently taking into account when they decide to support a new artist, and how are collections responding to political change?

And what role are new artistic and curatorial voices playing in the shaping of collecting institutions?
