Center for Arts, Business & Culture
The studies carried out at ABC focus on:
- aesthetic and cultural analyses of economic activities, for example how experiences, emotions, stories, and symbols create value,
- economic and organizational analysis of artistic activities, for example the organization of artistic practices and the values of art,
- arts-based and experimental methods in research, education and action.
We collaborate with artists and artistic organizations, businesses communities, the public and civil sector, and researchers from a variety of disciplines, nationally and internationally. We welcome a multitude of theoretical and methodological approaches, and encourage interdisciplinary projects.
ABC is a research center at SIR, Stockholm School of Economics Institute for Research. The SIR Foundation is a national research institute for the economic sciences, with a focus on Business Administration in the broadest sense.
