Over the last thirty+ years the Fine Arts have found themselves in an increasingly tight squeeze between a rock and hard place in most Western countries. Their development shows why not every arts market segment can be measure by the same criteria – like an egalitarian community purpose, financial independence or adaptation to capitalist logic – and why there is still a need for Arts for Art’s Sake.

In the beginning of September 2018, the German Library Association invited me to travel to Latvia and Lithuania to trace the status quo of digitization in big and small libraries in Riga, Klaipda, Plunge and Vilnius together with a group of German journalists. Above all, I took one thing with me: compared to Germany, digitization is a matter of course in the Baltic States.

We have witnessed the development of the field of arts management with its own professional identity and academic programs around the world. But one wonders if its theoretical framework, curricula and approaches really respond to the reality of the different countries, especially when considering the distinction between North and South. The book Introduction to International Arts Management by Raphaela Henze assumes the important role of provoking this discussion.

Compared to the large public institutions, small theatres have to fight for their survival time and again. But this independence also allows freedom to experiment, whether in terms of artistic formats and themes or cultural management. The Theatre Får302 in Copenhagen has been doing this very successfully for over 30 years and has repeatedly attracted national attention.

Globalisation heavily affects the daily work of arts managers around the globe in both positive and negative ways. But although intercultural understanding currently may seem to be more difficult than ever before and some voices are still absent, new narratives enter the stage that can help arts managers to meet current challenges and their supra-regional impacts. This issue of Arts Management Quarterly on "Cultural Inequalities" raises the curtain for these narratives. It is the result of a stimulating cooperation with the network Brokering Intercultural Exchange. The articles present insights into the barriers for intercultural understanding and collaboration among arts managers.

The book by Jenny Svensson - by now only published in German under the title Die Kunst, Kultur (nicht) nur zu messen: Evaluation im Theater- und Kulturbetrieb - presents a functional model of evaluation measures of public funded cultural enterprises. Thus, it makes a fruitful contribution to the path to further professionalization of the cultural industry and cultural management.

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.

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.
