A roundtable discussion at Spike Berlin with Krist Gruijthuijsen, director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, New York–based artist Mathieu Malouf, and Nina Power, a cultural critic and theorist living in London. Moderated by Laurie Rojas

It has become an all too common cliché that everyone from brokers to Uber drivers is employed under the model of the artist. Over and over, you hear that the boundaries between art, pop, and creative industries are blurring. What sets the artist apart from the non-artist? What sets the art object apart from other objects? A discussion with artists Natascha Sadr Haghighian and Simon Denny, and exhibition maker and gallerist Alexander Koch, moderated by Kolja Reichert.
