Aesthetic Relations in Place of the Lone Hero in Arts Leadership: Examples from Film Making and Orchestral Performance

Abstract [en]

The authors argue for a relational perspective on leadership in arts organizations. They call into question the image of leader as lone individualistic hero in control of events, particularly in terms of how arts processes are understood. Given that both film projects and symphony orchestras feature many hard-working, committed people, the authors propose that the entire team, including the leader, be viewed as “hero.” They propose that the perspective in which a sole leader is put on a pedestal be replaced by a relational perspective in which leadership is shared within an organization. In this perspective, leaders and those with whom they interact are equally responsible for the actions and relations they construe jointly. Viewing leadership as a shared phenomenon also highlights the importance of aesthetics in all kinds of leadership processes.
