Monitoring Report on Culture and Creative Industries in Germany

The new version of the Monitoring Report on Culture and Creative Industries in Germany is now available.

This second edition describes the situation of culture and creative industries in Germany and provides, for the first time, an introduction to culture and creative industries in Europe.

In his summary, the author Michael Soendermann points out that, "besides contributing considerably to the creation of value-added offerings in Germany, the culture and creative industries also provide models for future forms of work and life; they are part of a future knowledge- and content-oriented society."

According to the author, "the culture and creative industries show important structural characteristics that may and will find their way into other economic branches as well. The culture and creative industries are already characterized by work and business models that will gain great importance in the future. Due to the hybrid work forms and content-oriented production of many businesses in the culture and creative industries, they are pioneering the way towards a knowledge-based economy in Germany."
