What are the challenges artworld is facing in the time of globalization and increasing technologization? How to balance cultural interests and local scenes with global opportunities and art with technological innovations? How to view the interplay of art and globalization in the context of complex economic, trade, social, technological, cultural and political interrelationships? How does art reflect upon globalization: does it support intercultural and transnational ideals or it is indifferent to claims of geography, history, and identity? How does it resist and how does it support globalization? Do new institutions and technologies allow us to enjoy and experience art from different cultures or they unify them? What new forms of artistic and technical exchanges are taking place? How does international cooperation help emerging fields of art? How can new technologies expand the social, economical, cultural and artistic aspects? What are the limits or possibilities on the technological level to build art projects that improve international cooperation? Do emerging technologies and art institutions support cultural diversity or they level it?
