Introducing the Artnet Watercooler Chat, an Informal Pop-Up Conversation Between Our Writers on the Issues of the Day

Join us for a Zoom discussion about the ways the US and Germany are assisting their artists and art workers—and why they're so different.

The Artnet News Watercooler Chat.

Are you missing your coworkers right now? Wish you could join in on the kind of casual but stimulating chitchat that used to make watercooler breaks the highlight of your day? Us too.

That’s why we’re launching the Artnet News Watercooler Chat, where two of our writers will connect over Zoom for an unscripted 30-minute conversation about one of the most pressing art-world topics of the day. At noon EST today, join Art Business Editor Tim Schneider and European Editor Kate Brown for an informal but informative back-and-forth about the ways that the governments in the US and in Germany have gone about assisting artists, arts workers, and cultural institutions during the coronavirus pandemic—and why the two countries’ approaches are so markedly different.

An audience Q&A session will follow the chat.

Click below to register, and see you there. No need to be fancy—it’s just a watercooler chat, after all.
