The Cultural Policy Lab provides a space for interdisciplinary reflection. It starts from the perspective of ‘institutional aesthetics,’ which the Institute for Theatre Studies at the LMU Munich is studying and developing. The Lab seeks to erect a dynamic institution that serves as a thinktank as well as a dotank from inside the physical and ideational space of the university, a place where this space can be reconceptualized through the lens of cultural policy.
With our pioneering work on transferring research between the arts and the humanities, we are forging new alliances. Cooperating with partners from arts agencies, cultural policy, the arts, and academia, we’re developing sustainable strategies for our cultural and creative economies.
