Inhaltsangabe: The search for sustainable futures calls forward a cultural change process. The cultural dimension of (un)sustainability stands at the core of the global crisis, pointing at the roots of unsustainable development and exploring alternatives. While sustainability offers an inspiring research field for artists and other cultural actors, the arts and other cultural sectors constitute experimental, reflexive and transformative fields for the advancement of sustainability. This book explores the manifold dimensions of that new mutual frontier: The twenty-one selected texts offer interdisciplinary insights from sociology, economics, phenomenology and philosophy, and from artists actively contributing to the search process of sustainability. The twenty-one authors share their experiences from Europe, Asia, North and Central America and Africa. Cultural actors and artists around the world as well as civil society organizations and institutional actors will find significant insights for their work in this book. This book also sets a landmark for a new research approach that will interest students,researchers and educators in the fields of arts and culture (including fashion and creative industries), as well as in the fields of sustainability, peace studies, ecology, systems thinking, globalization and development.
