Quality in the cultural field is mostly related to the artistic product. But how about the services and administration of arts organisations? How can they be defined, quantified and measured taking into account the perspectives of the different artistic sectors, institutions and countries? With this issue of Arts Management Quarterly, we shed light on existing approaches and inspire new ideas. And because we also want to offer the best possible services to our readers, we currently thoroughly overhaule our own services and are happy to already present you the new design of our journal with this issue.

Katrin Hassler's book (currently only available in German) attempts to explore this in a quantitative study and provides figures on the significance of gender for filling leading positions in the art field.

Lukasz Wróblewskis book seeks to address a lack of basic theoretical knowledge in the areas of strategic and marketing management amongst those working in the cultural sector. For arts professionals from countries such as the UK - the reviewers home country - this diagnosis may seem outdated. Yet given that Wróblewskis main research interest is the Polish cultural sector, this assessment can at least partly be revised allowing for the differing trajectory of development in the countrys arts institutions in recent years. Wróblewskis book therefore provides an enlightening and empirically based introduction to the current status of Polish arts management.

In the cultural sector and in cultural policy, international cooperation is taken for granted. But to be truly fruitful, cultural exchange must be on an equal footing. But what does that mean? Are arts organizations really on a par with their partners? Is it really fair cooperation they pursue? With her award-winning doctoral thesis, Dr. Annika Hampel has triggered the discussion of a topic debated still much too rarely.

The third seminar of the network Brokering Intercultural Exchange taking place in Zürich, Switzerland was the best gathering of Arts/Cultural Management academics, practitioners, and students I have have ever attended. To this appraisement, I have identified eight qualities that continue to come up in conversations like a leitmotiv from a Wagnerian opera.

The 36th Annual AAAE conference was hosted by Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh between May 31st and June 2nd 2017. The fact, that the conference took place in Europe, surely resulted in several new faces. One third of the participants were so-called first timers (assumedly several of them Europeans who took advantage of not having to travel that far).

This research seeks to develop greater understanding of the impacts of globalization, digitalization, and (im)migration on the work of arts managers and arts management researchers. Different from studies that focus specifically on those who work exclusively in international contexts, this paper aims to present current research based on an international empirical study of arts managers who do not necessarily cross borders for their work and who would in most cases not even consider their work international as such.

This article presents the results of a research on the opinions of arts/ cultural managers around the world regarding their profession, working conditions, current challenges, required competencies, and training opportunities.

Our current context of internationalisation, globalisation, and the increasing global migration presents challenges and opportunities for the arts and cultural sector. With creative and aesthetic expressions inherently reflective of cultural ideas, knowledge and values, arts and cultural managers have a significant role to play in directing, administering and mediating intercultural understanding. This refers to the ability to know, accept, value, and empathise with alternative perspectives and perceptions of the world.

The days of the lonesome artistic genius are already over for a long time. No one working in arts and culture would honestly assume that a creative process can prosper mostly in solitude. Instead, creativity and cooperation respectively collaboration accompany each other. This is also true because arts and cultural processes occur in social contexts and therefore always interact with social groups, whether it be producers, audiences, employees of institutions, sponsors, buyers and so on. Surprisingly for many, the same applies to management. And this is what makes the current issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "cooperation and collaboration" so promising.
