Learning From the Global Financial Crisis

This chapter examines the idea of communitarian artistic cocreativity and partnership as a way of addressing the global financial crisis. Beginning with the notion that an excessive emphasis on instrumental rationality and economic growth has resulted in an unsustainable contemporary situation, this chapter discusses the potential for leadership practice that is demonstrated by aesthetic engagement between “self” and “other.” The discussion focuses on the aesthetic practices demonstrated by the Maori artist Peter Robinson and the Detroit-based artist Tyree Guyton, who engage in dialogic art that helps create community by provoking critical reflection. It concludes by examining how this dialogical notion of leadership might be applied to the situation currently faced by U.S. President Barack Obama and the chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, Ben Bernanke.

Keywords:   global financial crisis, artistic cocreativity, aesthetic practices, Peter Robinson, Tyree Guyton, Barack Obama, Ben Bernanke
