Non-paper on phenomena related to the creative economies
As the offical research partner of the KKKW (Kompetenzzentrum Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft des Bundes), over the course of 2018 and 2019 the CreativeEconomies research venture created a three-pieced series of non-papers. Those non-papers are dedicated to explore state-of-the-art perspectives on important phenomena, puzzles, developments and controversies related to the creative economies. The focus is on the global debate. The translation and interpretation of those non-papers for the German context was jointly realised with the KKKW and in close interactions with multiple actors in the creative economies and beyond. Non-Paper II (2018) focusses on entrepreneurial strategies in the creative economies and is available here. Non-Paper III (2019) is about narrative strategies in teh creative economies and will be published in summer.
E-publication: Reframing the Cultural and Creative Industries
This e-publication has been developed along a series of workshops in Venice, Hong Kong, Zurich and London with the idea of reframing the Cultural and Creative Industries to develop “creative economies”.
Routines, Strategies and Management Engaging for Recurrent Creation “At the Edge”

The French sociologist Frédéric Martel introduces us to the era of “Smart Curation” in cultural criticism. Its hallmark is a blend of digital technology and human judgment. The original French text was written in the course of a research initiative of Zurich University of the Arts. It has now already been published in ten other languages.
