Values and (E)valuations of or as Cultural Practices? Entering a time of pragmatic experimentation.
SPACEX Training Event on Cultural Policy, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 21-22 September 2023
The research group “Artistic Knowing: Research in and on Art and Cultural Practices” of the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture at the University of Amsterdam is pleased to welcome the SPACEX community for a two day discussion on the present and, above all, the future of one of the most controversial practices within contemporary cultural policies: Evaluation. In particular, we will try to envision how managerial evaluations of cultural practices, as the ones imposed by “New Public Management”-oriented reforms, can be replaced by artistic evaluations as cultural practices, as the ones that are organic in artistic work.
