Experiencing Organisations

New Aesthetic Perspectives

by Ian W. King and Jonathan Vickery


‘Organisations’ are prevalent in our everyday lives. We engage with them at almost every turn, as clients, customers, employees or just as citizens. The large commercial corporation has become the dominant model of ‘organisation’, and such has been its hegemonic power that public, political and cultural organisations (hospitals, universities and even churches) have been modelled on it. But, partly as a result of the recent financial and economic crises, considerable re-thinking is now going on, much of which uses art and culture as models of thought, mechanisms of reflection, frameworks for critique, and as means by which to understand the challenges of organisational life.Experiencing Organisations – New Aesthetic Perspectives offers new understanding of organisations and of the experiences of the people inside them. Written for both specialist and generalist audiences, in purposively general terms the book addresses the way we encounter and engage with these different organisations, and argues that key to understanding is how we experience them in these interactions.
