Abstract [en]

In the early fall of 2013 it is reported in Smålandsposten, the local newspaper in the Småland region in the southern part of Sweden, that an opera house recently has been founded, and that it will stage Mozart’s The Magic Flute the following summer. To accentuate the regional connection the name of the opera house is Smålandsoperan, and behind the initiative are two cultural entrepreneurs who are presented as being driven by “bringing opera to the people” on one hand, and establishing a cultural institution that could house all the region’s opera competences and interests on the other. “One should not have to go to the big cities to experience opera”, one of them is quoted, highlighting the democratic aspects of both cultural production and consumption.

One year later Smålandsoperan is considered to be a huge success; the shows have been sold-out, the opera house has been taken to the heart by the critics. And the success has continued: In 2018 the opera has firmly established itself as an actor to be relied upon with five consecutive years of sold-out shows and critically acclaimed reviews. The success has however not come easy. Run as a corporate business, the opera has not been eligible for receiving financial support from public authorities, thus being solely dependent on revenues. This has put pressure on Smålandsoperan’s board to balance the company’s artistic ambitions with harsh economic realities – and doing so in an innovative manner.

In this paper, based on empirical field work carried out at Smålandsoperan under its first year (the thick description is reported in Ericsson, 2018), the board’s innovative actions during the opera’s first year is interpreted and problematized from an institutional logic’s perspective; and it is shown how different innovations are construed by means of the mobilization of two interrelated resources. On one hand the innovations are construed in relation to an organizing context, an all-encompassing and situated form of life where people not only live very closely with each other but also have developed a shared perception of the world (Johannisson, 2005), constituted by a loosely coupled network of cultural entrepreneurs “at the margins” (cf. Scott, 2012) of the artistic field who most often are related to each other by kinship and/or friendship. On the other hand the innovations are construed in relation to an idealistic infrastructure made up of non-profit associations and movements that are knitted together by the sharing of artistic ideals and values (cf. Ericsson, 2018).

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose is to present and explore Deleuze and Guattari’s (1988) concept of the “war machine” in relation to the academic discourse on entrepreneurship in order to contribute with a nuanced understanding of the discourse’s centrality in contemporary societies as well as its consequences.

Design/methodology/approach: The paper is conceptual in character and written in the form of an essay in order to capitalize upon the essay’s tentative and reflective epistemology.

Findings: The academic discourse on entrepreneurship conceptualized as a war machine is found to be set up against the State apparatus and resisting State appropriation by 1) deprecating bureaucracy, 2) criticizing normative societal institutions, and 3) self-consciously mobilizing actors into a scholarly movement. The consequences of these forms of resistance are on one hand a discursive colonialization of the natural, and on the other hand the formation of a seemingly strong alloy between the academic discourse on entrepreneurship and neoliberal ideology/political agendas.

Research/practical implications: The academic discourse on entrepreneurship conceptualized as a war machine draws attention to the discourse’s taken-for-granted notions about entrepreneurship as well as their consequences. As such the conceptualisation opens up for critical research on otherwise neglected or silenced empirical topics within research on entrepreneurship such as the formation of the academic discourse on entrepreneurship, the enrolment, socialisation, subjection and subjectification of researchers on entrepreneurship, and the discursive tactics of entrepreneurship researchers’ visavi the State apparatus.

Originality/value: In line with the essayistic epistemology, the essay hopefully gives the reader the opportunity to reflect upon on neglected or silenced issues within the academic discourse on entrepreneurship.

Abstract [sv]

Entreprenörskap på kulturens område är ett fenomen präglat av motstridigheter och paradoxer. Ekonomiska realiteter ställs mot konstnärliga och kreativa ambitioner – och kontrasteras mot sociala och ideologiska förväntningar. Vad kännetecknar de organisatoriska processer som gör detta entreprenörskap möjligt, men som samtidigt också begränsar det? Vilka typiska handlingar, erfarenheter och förhållningssätt kan sägas definiera entreprenörskap på kulturens område?

För att besvara frågor som dessa riktas blicken i den här boken  mot etableringen av företaget Smålandsoperan. Genom en fallstudie av detta ”tongivande entreprenörskap” skapas förståelse för entreprenörskapets typiska organiseringsrepertoar.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: In light of the many attempts within the social/societal turn of entrepreneurship to disconnect entrepreneurship from economic rationality and embrace it as an act of social becoming, the purpose is to reconnect entrepreneurship to its primary function within the capitalist regime: to make money and accumulate capital. This function, it is argued, is lost in present day research on entrepreneurship, and the aim therefore is to present a framework in which both economic and social aspects are found crucial for understanding entrepreneurship.

Design/methodology/approach: Following post-positivist research traditions the research is based on an autoethnographic case study of entrepreneurship in the field of music. In focus is the phenomenon of collecting records, and the cultural web of social and economic significances that unfolds by means of the authors confessional tales about engaging in record collecting is used as an interpretative lever to question the dichotomy between social and economic rationality and value within contemporary research on entrepreneurship.

Findings: In contrast to becoming or being perspectives on entrepreneurship, our interpretations lead us to frame entrepreneurship in terms of a having-mode. This mode in turn suggests a primary epistemic orientation based upon three interrelated socio-economic aspects: 1) a systemic know-what in order to distinguish field-specific values from non-value, 2) a systemic know-how to convert social value into economic value, and vice versa; and 3) a systemic know-how to create, capitalise upon and accrue field specific surplus value.

Research/practical implications: The proposed framework breaks with both modern and postmodern notions of entrepreneurship, and thereby opens up new vistas for research on entrepreneurship as intrinsically a social and economic phenomenon.

Originality/value: By opening up new vistas for research on entrepreneurship, alternative ways of describing, prescribing and understanding entrepreneurship are offered.

I den här texten problematiseras hur samlare av musik blir till och vilken betydelse kunskap om musik har för samlarens tillblivelse. Av särskilt intresse är att utveckla förståelse för det som sällan berörs när musiksamlande kommer på tal, nämligen samlandets ekonomiska aspekter.
