Novel Society investigates new connections between culture, economy and society

Novel Society is a think tank and incubator for novel ideas and projects


Novel Society is a foundation that conducts and publishes innovative research in the cultural sphere, initiates and develops societal projects and organises events. We are pragmatic idealists that believe in revolution nor status quo. Rather, we aim to develop our own, collective authority. In doing so we seek to create space for new ways of organising society and for alternative institutions.
