Markus Keibel’s work deals with the constant changeability of thoughts, actions and matter, while Florian Hofmann researches changes in organisational value creation systems in the context of a socio-ecological transformation. The two discussed the possibilities and impossibilities of a systematic transformation of the economic, the role the visual arts can play in this, and whether and to what extent art and science can or should have a transformative effect on economy and society.
