Art Dubai 2017: Global Art Forum 11. Trading Places

Trade is at the heart of humankind. Trade connects people to one another in a myriad of ways, seen and unseen. Trade can fuel civilizations and empires. It can dictate time itself. The end of trade turns somewhere suddenly into nowhere.
– Shumon Basar

“Trading Places” explores the the relationship between the economy of goods and ideas.
These two elements shape the world and our mind set and identity.
To discuss this issue, the Global Art Forum will bring together experts from the fields of art, history, economics, philosophy, urbanism, literature and more to tell untold histories and stories of the making and remaking of the world through trades.
