International Symposium
on Art Commissions - Art in Public Spaces
Hosted by Deutsche Bank , Berlin
27 November 2018

After the success of the previous IACCCA symposium (International Symposium on Corporate Collections and Museums – Synergies and New Perspectives on Collabo- ration), which took place in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 2016, IACCCA’s 2018 symposium focused on the role and importance of site-specific commissions and art in public spaces.

The symposium brought together representatives of various sectors: from public, private and corporate commissioners, to artists and architects, to urban planners, as well as representatives of public interest groups. The Symposium provided an occasion to expand and enriched our ways of thinking and engaging with large-scale art commissions and art in public spaces, and as such, to improve collaboration and heighten the discussion of why and how we could and should integrate art into our environments as well as the role of public art today and its recent and potential future directions.

The day was organised in two sessions, each featuring speakers who were invited to present a 20-minute paper. Presentations were followed by a moderated debate among panel members, and a lively discussion opened up to audience participation.


2018 speakers were the following one:

Kasper König, Curator, Berlin, Germany
Cristina Iglesias, Artist, Madrid, Spain
Sandra Bloodworth, Director, MTA Arts & Design, Metropolitan Transportation Authority New York, USA

International Symposium on Corporate Collections and Museums.
Synergies and new Perspectives on Collaboration. 25.11.2016

In 2016 the International Association of Corporate Collections of Contemporary Art (IACCCA) celebrated its tenth anniversary as a non-profit association of professional corporate curators. As an active network of corporate curators, IACCCA wished to mark its first decade of sharing best practices by holding an international symposium on the synergies and new perspectives regarding the collaboration between public, corporate and private collections, and between public and private museums.

The aim of the symposium was to discuss developments and challenges in the collaboration between art collections in the public and private sector. At a time when public-private partnerships appear to be increasingly frequent and necessary for public organisations, we wished to encourage debate on the meaning and scope of artistic patronage by corporate collections and to discuss the special, at times competitive, relationship these enjoy with public museums.


Congregating art world professionals, from museum directors, curators and corporate executive officers to arts managers, academics and artists, the symposium posed an opportunity to heighten awareness of public and corporate engagement with art and cultural and social programmes, but it also provided an occasion to develop new ways of thinking and improving collaboration between corporate and public art collections.
