The series explores power in art--and how it's bound up with democracy, society and the wider world. You'll meet people who are trying to change the balance of that power, and you'll witness resistance to that change. You'll hear about what's been won and what's been lost with an art market explosion fueled by money, technology and shifts in taste and power. Talking to dozens of people, from artists to astrologers, museum directors and curators to philanthropists and futurists, Schwartzman and Burns get a handle on where we are, how we got here and where we're going. Then, ultimately, as each episode explores a different realm in culture that's undergoing seismic change, you'll have the chance to determine if we can collectively move through the feelings of dread...to hope.
