Slide „No poem is intended for the reader, no picture for the beholder, no symphony for the listener.“ - Walter Benjamin

Cultural Leadership

Successfully presenting new ideas, art, and creativity, has no financial guarantees or reliable predictions.  In a world where everything wants a manual, where data and metrics are gold, living without a map creates great opportunities, but is also high risk.

Throughout all times and paradigm shifts, leadership in culture, music, and the arts enables opportunities and thought, and maps the cultural values and territory for others to explore. It is altruistic and utilitarian at the same time, requires understanding of the past and a passionate curiosity for the future.
