Due to the economic crisis the creative industries have become a location factor praised by politicians as a growth market poised to outperform the car industry. In which way has this new framework changed the relation between art and capital? Maybe the norm of the economy supporting the growth of culture is due to be reversed?

Due to the economic crisis the creative industries have become a location factor praised by politicians as a growth market soon to outperform the car industry. The balance between artists and economic representatives is changing. It seems that the norm of the economy supporting the growth of culture is due to be reversed. We ask: in which way has this new framework changed the relation between art and capital? Can there be a balanced exchange between culture and economy? What are the preconditions for a cooperation at eye level?
