Creativity, Commerce & Culture

One of the fascinating paradoxes of the digital revolution is that it’s unleashed such divergent ideas that we lack a common ground for even talking about the radical changes happening.

CCCHeader400When art is created for commercial purposes, who owns it? And once it’s in the hands of consumers, what rights do they have to change it and make it their own?

Creativity, Commerce & Culture is an ongoing series of projects that aspire to develop innovative ways of discussing the complex artistic, legal and ethical issues facing creative industries and individual artists in the age of entertainment and digital revolution.

CCC combines scholarship across multiple disciplines, artistic works in many media, performance and journalism. It gathers diverse constituencies that may not otherwise speak to each other and enables comparisons between realms not usually studied together. A frank engagement with the digital revolution requires that we take account the very modes of communication usually taken for granted.
