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

Cultural Leadership

Presenting art and ideas successfully has no manuals, financial guarantees or reliable predictions.  In a world where everything can be calculated and scaled, where data and metrics are gold, living without a map creates great opportunities, but is also high risk.

Throughout all times and paradigm shifts, cultural leaders enable opportunities and thought, and map the cultural territory for others to explore. They must be altruistic and utilitarian at the same time.
