Over the past four years, L'Internationale and its partners have worked in the current unstable geopolitical and ecological constellation to activate the values of culture and international collaboration. What specific contribution can museums and cultural institutions offer to counter the plural crisis of today's fragmented globalised society? How can specificity, research, dialogue and difference be constructively activated in the institutions of culture to build lasting friendships between communities?

The Uses of Art programme culminates in a series of simultaneous activities, linked through L'Internationale Dialogues: a rich programme of engaged professional dialogues. This programme is launched with a full day of live broadcasts of discussions, performances, and live tours through the new exhibitions, on 27 April.

In order to discuss four pertinent questions, L'Internationale Dialogues invites leading thinkers, artists, activists and cultural workers to address our current global predicament:

–Who is speaking? Representation and non-representation in (art) politics today

–What is true? Populism in the era of post-truth

–What needs to change? Transformations and futures of institutions, social design

–Where is South? Knowledge and epistemologies of the Global South
