Visual Art Politics did participate in the 16.th General Assembly of IAA in China, in Beijing and in Hefei city, on 19-29.th of September, 2005 with status as observer, represented by Charlotte Brüel, editor of Visual Art Politics and chairman of EVAN.
EVAN was present at the ECA conference in Amsterdam 8.-10. Oct. 2004:
A Portrait of the Artist in 2015,
Artistic careers and higher arts education in Europe
Before the conference a reader, with the same title as the conference, compiled by Ingrid Janssen, was sent to the participants - which was a very good idea, as the people present at the conference so was well prepared to jump directly into discussions at a qualified level.
Charlotte Brüel did make an interview with the actor Jorge Bosso, who at the general assembly of ECA ( on the 10.October ) stepped down, after 6 years in charge as president. Go to Interviews at this site , www.visualartpolitics.org, in order to read the inteview,
Defense of the Art as a very essential Part of Life.
