course contents

Cultural Management I focuses on the cultural sector in its structures, contexts, framework conditions and modes of operation. In order to understand the structures of the cultural sector, the contexts in the art, music, theatre, literature, film and festival sectors are presented using examples: This includes the interaction between producing, mediating, exploiting and conserving institutions, the importance of supporting structures (public-law, private-law non-profit, private-law-commercial); areas of responsibility in the cultural sector (artistic directors, curators, creative and performing artists, etc.) and labor-law framework conditions, the role of interest groups, copyright regulations and the influential interrelationship between cultural management and cultural policy.
Following a historical outline of the emergence of cultural institutions, the focus is on current influencing factors and concepts such as participative formats, cultural development plans, the increased consideration of human rights, cross-sectional management such as cultural tourism and forms of digital cultural production such as Remix.
