Resource description

The paper aims at discussing the issue of governance in respect to creativescenes, a central structural element of the creative economy, exemplifying thecase of Berlin. Berlin has a fast growing creative industry that has become theobject of the city’s development policies and place marketing. The core questionis: What are the spatial-organizational driving forces of creativity in Berlin - canthey be steered by public administration? I am using Berlin as a reference caseto articulate the gap between ‘state-led planning’ on the one hand and theorganisational practices of self-governed creative scenes on the other. I attemptto demonstrate why a perspective change in terms of re-scaling is necessary, inorder to respond to the particular practices of emerging industries and theirsocietal form “scenes”. By re-scaling I mean the conceptualization of governancein different non-hierarchical organisational as well as spatial scales, based onthe observation that scenes are considered to be a central element of thefunctionality of creative industries.
