On Management

Refreshments will be served. Signing up for the event is required, last day for signing up is Friday, October 6.

Management is often treated as a separate domain in relation to the field of contemporary creative practice. Those employed to manage and administrate institutions are separated from those who create content, be they artists, musicians, performers or designers.

They are separated through culture, but also spatially, logistically, financially, in terms of rights and freedoms.

How are we affected by the political and social difference between “making” and “managing”? What happens when management at the same time is perceived as a task of lower status and an oppressive mechanism?

Welcome! Please note that signing up is required.
