Introduction
Dispositive der Kulturfinanzierung

When the Fachverband für Kulturmanagement was founded, it intended to publish a periodical in order to not only give a home to the field’s debates within academic research and teaching, but also, more than that, to facilitate them. This platform was established with the Jahrbuch für Kulturmanagement, of which five volumes have appeared since 2009, portraying the complex range between the development and reflection of theory and the inherent practice-orientation in cultural management. The periodical also takes on an important constitutive role with regard to the establishment of the still young academic discipline itself.

    • Abstract

      Through the use of positive, solution-oriented perspectives, cultural management has contributed significantly to opening and expanding the cultural industry. Meanwhile, the methods and instruments of cultural management are essential for the initiation and implementation of growth processes in the creative sector. The current criticism of this pressure for growth, acceleration, and innovation also questions the practice of cultural management. This paper calls for self-criticism, or the act of reflection on the social position of the subject.

    • Abstract

      For several years, the topic of crowdfunding is present in cultural fields as an alternative form of financing. Platforms such as Kickstarter or Startnext enable artists to realize projects with the financial support of their “crowd”, through which the individual becomes sponsor and investor. This paper deals with the basic function of crowdfunding, including its advantages as well as problems that may occur. The question of what role crowdfunding will have in the financing mix of cultural projects in the longer term will be a central concern of this study.

    • Abstract

      Since the rise of the Internet, there have been transformations in media practices of teenagers. On the one hand, the scope for self-regulation at schools has been growing, whereas on the other hand, there has been a devaluation of compulsory material knowledge. Ranking now the Internet as the key media in our knowledge-based society, the position of state-controlled media in educational contexts has been weakened. The development towards self-regulated learning stimulates the success of Internet media at school as well as a fragmentation of knowledge. Today, the state risks losing its monopoly in education.

  • Research Article
    • Abstract

      Based on two theoretical concepts by Michel Foucault, dispositive factors of cultural funding are analyzed. Foucault emphasized that the “dispositive,” as a network of discourses and institutions, is best analyzed through genealogic research, excavating settings of power and influences that modify the operative mode of a “dispositif” in power. The Austrian development of private non-profit cultural organizations is analyzed as an example. More general frames to the subject are given by referring to the controversial discourse about “freedom of expression in the arts” as well as sociopolitical tasks of art and cultural organizations.

    • Abstract

      In the context of peripheral cinematographies, in which film festivals offer grants for production or distribution, there are production companies interested in taking part in the funding subcircuit created by these international events. These are films that, in addition to being supported by the international film festival circuit, are premiered in this same context. As the recipients of several important awards. Control Z (based in Uruguay) and Fábula (in Chile) are two clear examples of companies that are creating their own filmographies since the beginning of 2000s within the production subcircuit launched by festivals during the last decade.

    • Abstract

      The question of distributive justice is decisive for the future of public funding for culture. In participatory cultural policy-making, e.g. cultural developmental planning, citizen engagement is threatened to be played out against austerity and politically-calculated, top-down decision making. This contribution takes a mainly theory-based perspective, dealing with advantages and challenges inherent in (local) cultural governance.

    • Abstract

      Probably the most prevalent indicator of the financial performance of non profit arts organizations is their ability to attract private funding. Therefore, the Dutch government introduced the so-called ‘income standard’. In this contribution, we explore the income standard as a mechanism to leverage private support for the arts and discuss some of its implications. Not only may the income standard – which is based on a matching principle – be a precursor of a different mode of financing non-profits in Europe; it may also raise conflicts with other organizational and policy goals, and as such jeopardize the non-profit form of organizing the arts.
