This book is a monograph of cultural economics of a new concept, art- enterprises. It explores various dimensions that artists embody, i.e., aesthetic, critical, messianic, and economic ones, and screens the multiple challenges faced by the artist-enterprises in terms of pricing, funding, and networking in the Digital Age. It shows how these artist-enterprises are at the core of the contemporary creative industries.
