Reset: a debate on culture in times of change

For the second year running, CaixaFòrum is calling on experts in the fields of technology, communication and social networks to offer a diagnosis of the state of creation in our century

21st century culture is, in many respects, different from that of the 20th century. Things have changed greatly, we communicate in different ways, we consume with other objectives, the culture business has changed radically and at the root of this transformation is a new technological paradigm, the implementation of internet and the social network boom, which have all created new languages, new needs and new priorities. So, how can we grasp contemporary culture when it’s in a state of constant flux, bereft of absolute certainties and the rate of change is absolutely relentless? To answer these questions an initiative came into being last year at CaixaFòrum: Reset defines itself as a forum of ideas that tackles the issues of changes in the field of culture at both the local and the international levels. It aims to be an opportunity for reflection, debate and the clarifying of ideas.

Over two days, CaixaFòrum will become a laboratory for thought. Thanks to a series of roundtable discussions and talks by experts, we will get a better idea of how the cultural paradigm has changed, what sectors have met with problems and solutions, and what world this is all leading to. Reset is divided into different spaces for reflection - Keynote, Gerundio, Zoom, Un cafè con..., Wake Up, and Roof-Arts – in which we can talk to professionals from different cultural sectors and listen to their opinions and diagnoses on profits, responsibilities, collaboration and the exchange of ideas. Among the professionals whose presence has been confirmed are Marina Willer (designer for Pentagram and filmmaker), Jaume Ripoll (co-founder of Filmin), Gumersindo Lafuente (journalist at, Albert Puig (Catalunya Ràdio) and Narcís Puig, the director of the Temporada Alta festival.

Reset aims to be a gigantic brainstorming sessions and is especially aimed at people who are specialised in culture, cultural industries, the media and technology adapted to leisure and the distribution of news and cultural products.
