The Institute for Social Research Berlin (WZB
) has just published (in Spanish) "Challenges addressed by artistic interventions in organizations: Examples of Conexiones improbables 2011-2013
" based on reflections made by over 80 project managers
who participated in long connections or creative pills. The learning that stands out
is "new ways of seeing things"
and the WZB researchers conclude: "(...) the positioning of the actors outside their usual contexts gives them a different impulse to work with their own ressources
. The artist brings values and practices of the art world that break into the organization promoting the development of important capabilities of organizational learning

, Essen, the second prize of N.I.C.E. Award 2014 (Network for Innovations in Culture and Creativity in Europe
