[ART&FLUX] art as an enterprise, as a specific practice based on attitudes, agreements and productivities – instead of a result of mere inspiration or through authorship based on exquisitness. art not to be considered as an aesthetic production of goods or processes for a speculative financial market, but as a practice-oriented instrument for social concerns and associative connections.

corporate objectives derived from open-ended investigations and converted into specific applied practices. activities resting upon entrepreneurial risk appetite and synergetic effects in collaborative processes and heterogeneous markets.

art based collective and dialogical methods are meant to capture and formulate practical knowledge. this knowledge is implicitly, diffusely and rebelliously part of critical change situations in order to question representation, management and organizational practices.

let us become more definite!
