2 Culture? ‘Way of life’ Giving meaning to human existence in society – Socialization (enculturation) – Qualification – Subjectification Cultural sector? – Social-cultural, heritage, (amateur) arts – Reflective design of ‘living together’ – Measure and dismeasure of culture (dialectical)

4 What happens with ‘value’ in evidence based policy? Empirical research: causality-doxa => Event: limited in time  habits, conservation,… (clock time  embedded time) => Isolation of an event => de-contextualizing culture (to measure  to experience) => value becomes function (systemic) (Boomkens: ‘Sex is reduced to reproduction’) => survey/interview: reduction of values to cognitive/(self-)reflexive competences To measure is not to know To measure is to give sense in a specific way = culture – producing a culture No evidence for evidence based research WE NEED TO STUDY CULTURE AS A SENSEMAKING PROCESS

5 The meaning of culture? The European crisis is a cultural crisis Political crisis: support Economic crisis: trust ‘No Culture, No Europe’ Rhineland or neoliberal? = ideological choice, based on values and culture!
