Inhalt: The seminar is dedicated to contemporary transformations of the forms and processes of cultural organization. The seminar is broadly structured into three parts: In Part I, we will draw upon recent sociological and organization-theoretical work to reflect on the transformation of the sphere of art and cultural production, and its implications for understanding organization and organizing. In Part II, we will zoom in on specific fields and sites in order to discuss how cultural organizing has been reconfigured (or not). This entails, for instance, a) the (contested) transformation of urban space in and towards ‘creative cities’ and its emphasis on the fields of art and culture; b) the (related) rise of ‘culturepreneurship’ as a kind of entrepreneurial turn in cultural production, and its implications; c) the technological and socio-cultural transformation of (art) museums as key cultural institutions and the demands to reorganize how they operate; d) contemporary art’s keen interest in the nature of sociality and social transformation, where artistic production has turned to organization as a cultural form itself, as artistic material to be worked on and with. In Part III, the students will conduct their own empirical investigations of contemporary forms and processes of organizing culture. The participants will be asked to identify and form groups around specific cases, sites, initiatives or platforms (not limited to the fields and sites listed above), on which to conduct fieldwork in the form of on-site visits, interviews, participant observation, and other fieldwork techniques. The groups will present their findings in a research conference (in the form of a mini-exhibition) in a local art space (location tbd).
