Parity Talks 6 – What’s Good?

For the 6th edition of the Parity Talks at the ETH Zurich, I was thrilled to moderate a roundtable on Tastemaking, with the participation of Meike Schalk, Katarina Bonnevier MYCKET, Cruz Garcia, Nathalie Frankowski, Els Silvrants-Barclay, Regine Keller, Marion Fonjallaz, Morgane Hofstetter, Dieter Dietz, Tom Emerson, Leonie Wagner and Olga Cobuscean. This conversation gathered deans, professors, and students from various institutions, and proposed a multigenerational encounter to discuss our current understanding of good practice, who decides what is good, and the problems of education based on ideas of excellence.
