We couple brands, corporations and institutions of all kind with artists to infuse these organizations with the arts’ creative power, non-linear thinking and outside perspective.
They say artists play without fear of making mistakes, they have an openness to trial and error. Artists have their very own perspective and know how to think “outside of the box”. Artists reinvent the world with their works.
Today, ever more artists and companies realize the potential of each other, which is why manifold collaborations between both worlds arise. There are plenty of different collaboration forms – from co-created limited editions to artist residencies, from artist insight workshops and interviews to experimental pop-up spaces – but often, these collaborations prove to be difficult: The company’s expectations may not match those of the artist and vice versa, or a lack of mutual understanding may prevent both a fruitful process and the sustainable implementation of the generated insights into the corporate structures.
As the owners of Circle Culture (Cc) Consulting also operate the Circle Culture Gallery, one of Cc’s key strengths lies in speaking both languages while always putting respectful, equal and empathetic dialogues first: Cc knows the artist’s wishes and potential fears perfectly well and is, at the same time, aware of those of the collaborating company.
Cc has therefore begun to advise brands by bringing them together with artists from our gallery as well as from the global key creative network, accompanying both sides equally throughout the entire collaborative process.
Past fusions have shown that with the help of Cc as an intermediary, artists and companies work together more successfully, more trustfully and more creatively with the fulfilling result that both parties’ expectations are often even exceeded.

Cc Art Collaborations is jointly run by Dirk Staudinger and Johann Haehling von Lanzenauer. Since 2001, they together also own both the strategic and creative brand consulting Circle Culture (Cc) and the Circle Culture Gallery.
By joining forces on this third venture, they wish to fully leverage their long-standing expertise in both the art and commercial world and serve as bridging match-makers, cultural translators and true partners for both parties.
Dirk and Johann firmly believe that there is no other entity today that is more capable of bestowing creativity, aesthetics, insights, value and legitimacy on brands, corporations and institutions than art.
By helping both worlds to merge – in the context of either one-off projects or long-lasting partnerships – Art Collaborations by Circle Culture (Cc) enables peerless experiences, one-of-a-kind products, unparalleled knowledge, unique perspectives and excellent corporate cultures.
