Excerpt. «Other authors even take the artist’s role as to be the society’s new ideal type. In their opinion, creativity—which is also known to have the ability to develop innovative solutions—begins with surpassing conventions, a pivotal characteristic of artists (Fastert et al. 2011, 12). Furthermore, art can also have an impact on the economy, which might signify nothing less than innovation (Krause 2013). Boltanski and Chiapello (1999)» (p. 136)
