Organizational Aesthetics is about how the five senses and artistry inform business, non-profit, and government organizations. We mean for both terms, aesthetics and organizational, to be understood broadly to include a range of topics. Examples are the use of arts-based methods in organizations, theoretical accounts of aesthetic phenomena in organizations such as beautiful (or grotesque) leadership, and the art about/in/behind organizations. In fact, we hope that authors and artists will take us to places we haven’t even begun to describe here. The content of the journal is organized into four sections: Theory, Practice, Art, and Reviews.

Organizational Aesthetics is a publication of The Art of Management and Organization.
