Research at the Center for Cultural Production

The emergence of digital media has resulted in an unprecedented surge of artistic and cultural production. The research network 'Cultural Production of the Next Society' brings together researchers who examine the various forms of production, reception and communication within the cultural sector. Bridging different academic disciplines, the individual projects look at new artistic formats, current professional pathways, networks and economic models within the artistic and cultural industries and, through this, test and develop new theoretical models.

The research aims to combine research methods from social and cultural science with strategies of artistic research. Researchers are deliberately using alternative forms of observing and reflecting social behavior. Being a framework for six research streams, the network organized both a series of conferences, seminars, talks, and artistic projects. In addition to these, the research within the network has also resulted in a number of books, peer-reviewed journal articles and contributions to various anthologies – some of which were a cooperation with artist-researchers.

The research streams are:
| Artistic Episteme and it's Social Developments
| Work and Professionalization within the Art Field
| Staging and Curating
| Politics and Economics of Culture (Industries)

| Changes in the Cultural Public

| (Non) Audience Studies
