*week 1: **Going Glocal - is this the way forward to deal with the
challenges of globalization in the arts and the cultural industries?*

This session introduces the idea of glocal - the split between the global
and local and discusses if this might be an interesting way forward for the
art world. While the art world has become increasingly global with
tendencies to large corporations ruling the commercial section (auction
houses, galleries art fairs), it has also proven to be very resilient
against attempts to unify artistic production and has remained vital and
engaging. The session will look at some examples of globalization and wall
as regionalization and raise the question how we can navigate between those
two diverse strands in the art market.

*week 2: The Future of Art Fairs*

Art Fairs have developed to become the main platform not only for the
selling and buying of art, but moreover also for critical discourse and
curatorial debate. However, with an ever increasing competitive market and
hundreds of fairs, is there a "fairtigue" (Georgina Adam, FT) suffocating
us all? And if not, what does the future hold for art fairs. This session
will give an overview of the history of art fairs, explore different types
of fairs, look at different models that are currently dominating the market
and look at potential developments for the future.

*week 3:* *The Advance of the Private Museum - what is happening to Art

For Centuries collecting has attracted the interests not only of dealers
but also of scholars and psychoanalysts. With the dominance of contemporary
art in the past decades and the emergence of new collecting territories the
rules and attributes of collecting have changed. The discrete, European
collector with impeccable taste and connoisseurship seems to have vanished
and not even the "super-collector" Charles Saatchi really makes the news
any more. Instead the mega rich have taken over and more often than not
wish to build a legacy through the establishment of private museums. The
session will discuss pros and cons of this development and asks how the
collector of tomorrow will look like.

*Stephanie Dieckvoss*

Having worked as Fair Manager at Frieze Art Fair from its inauguration in
2003, Stephanie played a central role in the launch of ART HK in 2007. As

place in June 2011 in partnership with Sothebys and raised £3.75 million.
Stephanie holds an MA in Art History from the Courtauld Institute of Art,
London and the University of Hamburg, Germany, and is currently finishing
an MBA with the Warwick Business School. Since 2009 she has lectured at
