Be Creative: Transformations in the New Culture Industries

Keynote lecture Angela McRobbie: Creative Labour in the Modern Work Society

Why has the idea of creative economy been so important for government in recent years? Which sectors of the population have come to attention for training and education in these fields? Why have universities and art schools come to occupy such prominent places in times of ‘knowledge transfer’? This lecture will offer a series of arguments on topics, which include:

  • creativity dispositif as labour reform
  • the artist as human capital
  • the gender of post-fordism
  • the politics of social enterprise
  • the future of ‘projects’

This event is part of Studium Witte de With, the higher education platform for art and theory by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art. Studium Witte de With is intended to serve as a catalyst bridging various fields of knowledge across higher education. It presents lectures, debates, workshops, and other programming in collaboration with partner institutes, rooting the programme in the curriculums of Academies and Universities.
