New challenges of the arts and cultural market

The unprecedented development of the art market over the past few years has resulted in the ‘financialisation’ of the art market. Art is now seen not only as an object of pleasure, but also as a new alternative asset class with interesting business opportunities.

Meanwhile, the globalisation of culture means art organisations and culture-related companies are faced with a number of strategic issues critical to reaching their goals. Developments like these have created the need for specialised services to support them.
