Forthis year’s edition of Swab Radio, our goal is to bring togetherinsiders from diverse backgrounds on shared themes.
Through focused round tables, we shed light on this dynamic. Artists, collectors, gallerists and curators will examine their relationship on common themes, revealing the nuances of connection and friction between these seemingly separate but interconnected worlds. In open dialogue, new perspectives on contemporary art and its challenges emerge, enriching our understanding of a complex and fascinating landscape.
ROUNDTABLE I : SWAB FOCUS LATAM
In Swab Radio’s first roundtable, we explore the internal evolution of the Latin American contemporary art scene: dominant themes and changes. We analyze its connection to domestic and European markets, revealing the dynamics that influence its transformation and global interaction.
Participants: José Luis Lorenzo, Collectio & Santiago Gasquet
Date: Oct 6th | 4pm
ROUNDTABLE II: SWAB VIDEO BOX
In Swab Radio’s second roundtable, we explore Southeast Asian art dynamics, focusing on new digital art formats and the integration of artificial intelligence. We investigate how these innovations can fill gaps in traditional resources and expand artistic expression in challenging contexts.
Participants: Safecreatve & Alfonse Chiu
Date: Oct 7th | 2pm
ROUNDTABLE III: SWAB MEDITERRANEAN
This third round table will focus on exploring art dynamics in the Mediterranean, promoting innovative dialogues between independent art spaces. This will provide an opportunity to discover new Catalan talent and facilitate discussions between artists and curators. This meeting would provide a valuable opportunity to understand the cultural and historical influences shaping contemporary art in the Mediterranean region and to analyze the crucial role of curators in interpreting and promoting these creative

ROUNDTABLE IV: LOCAL HORITZONS
The fourth round table will confornt three key figures in the art world, both in the gallery and collecting sectors. This meeting will foster a challenging conversation about different experiences and perspectives. We will explore how global dynamics can influence the art scene locally, thus helping to define the future of art in an increasingly interconnected context.

ROUNDTABLE V: MYFAF + SEED
When starting to collect art or when wanting to continue to grow your collection many factors come into play. Is it necessary for your collection to have the same aesthetic or is it better to have diversity? do you consider the trajectory of the artist? if it is emerging or established? Or is it simply love at first sight?
Participants: Domenico de Chirico, Julie Caredda & Colette Mariana

PLAGIARISM AND PROTECTION OF THE CREATIVE PROCESS IN THE AGE OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCES BY SAFECREATIVE
We will discuss how new technologies can be used in the challenges we face, both in the face of traditional plagiarism, as well as with everything related to Artificial Intelligences. From protecting the creative process, to how artists deal with artificial intelligences, from the perspective of threat as much as another creative tool.
Since a few months ago, Generative Artificial Intelligences based on massive learning models have become the most used and popular applications. AIs are not really new issues, but their openness to the general public has led to them being talked about for two main reasons, although there are more issues to be taken into account:
The use that the companies exploiting these systems make of third-party works so that their algorithms learn to mimic human technical artistic ability, and to what extent these tools will become part of the creative process of the artists themselves.
When an AI can easily emulate an artistic style or imitate famous paintings or photographs, it raises questions about the value of human intervention in the creation of the work, the possibility that rights are being infringed, and how artists can prepare for this revolution.
At Safe Creative we are always on the lookout for new technologies; we have been offering technological solutions to the challenges that technology introduces for more than 15 years. We will discuss what AI means for creators and how digital evidence and records can provide solutions to the challenges they face.
Participants: Mario Pena. Safecreative
Date: Oct 6 | 7pm
This talk will be in charge by Safecreative for creators who want to learn about the digital realities of copyright protection.
