Dispositions of cultural funding
Cultural funding structures and their consequences for cultural production and reception
The 8th Annual Conference of the Fachverband Kulturmanagement focuses on the interdependency between financing systems and the production and reception of cultural goods and processes. Artistic practice and cultural activities do not simply happen by themselves, but rather refer – by their results and effects – to their conditions of creation. Which theory-based approaches can cultural management use for contributing to a debate on cultural funding that allows for authenticity, innovation and diversity in the cultural field? How can cultural management influence the forming of support criteria and structures? What financing models, apart from the existing ones, could be envisaged in order to strengthen alternative forms of cultural production?
