Abstract [en]

Speak of either culture or economy and one finds oneself speaking of phenomena that are highly ephemeral, transitory and amorphous in form. But put the two words together and one find one’s self, in one and the same breath, entering a realm of potential societal growth and employment possibilities in which creativity is prized, and the ability to innovate and flexibly adapt to new circumstances is expected. This a world of productivity in which outcomes are not always given in advance, but are often presumed to be near at hand, and in which gut feelings can in many cases prove to be as important as rational calculations. At the same time, there is a great deal of very practical, hands-on-activity taking place here as marketers carefully survey populations to take the pulse of the latest trends on the street, architects calculate the strengths and weaknesses of the newest building materials, and artists carefully fill in applications which they hope will lead to the funding of their work.
