Interchangeably referred to as human capital, it is inexhaustible and with increasing returns to scale it is a driver of growth . In Southeast Asia, links have been made among countries occupying varying stages of developmental trajectory, with how much and how early their gove rnments invested in human capital development. Providing incentives for loc al education and workforce training alongside attracting foreign highly-ski lled individuals and multinational corporations (for their R&D) set up the conditions for thriving economies.\n\nThe art world, when considered as a global network of goods, individuals, and institutions, is a treasure tr ove of knowledge and creativity. Aided by technological developments in mas s media which have reduced frictions in viewing and communication, the netw ork’s reach extends beyond established art capitals. New places that partic ipate in its exchange indicate a level of prosperity or, at the very least, aspirations to a certain model of growth. Not only have regions in the Glo bal South found increased artist representation in core biennials, if not r ecord sales in the art market, the countries themselves boast homegrown lar ge-scale international events. It can be argued that art’s core-periphery m odel is shifting; however, its transnational nodes of art institutions cont inue to concentrate in the Global North. In case they do elsewhere, for exa mple in Southeast Asia, they touch down temporarily as branches or events a nd in cities that already attract creative persons seeking the market and b uzz. Within the context of a global system that allows for slippery flows o f capital, information, goods, and people regardless of distance and locati on, the absorptive capacities of a place to intellectual and creative capit al can spell the difference in its fate to retain positive effects and to c atch up to the rest of its neighbours.\n\nThis panel invites papers that an alyse the extent to which the production, exhibition or reception of art in Southeast Asia position any one or community to the benefits of globalizat ion; or, conversely, some areas are locked out due to existing institutiona l arrangements. It is also open to other cultural and creative industries, as well as historical accounts that cover previous waves of globalisation.\ n\nJoin Panel on Zoom\nPasscode for online access : 2zNK2+KZ URL: DTSTART;TZID=Europe/Paris:20220701T140000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/Paris:20220701T153000 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
