CULTURAL BRANDING STRATEGIES

Schedule:

June 20 – July 1
June 20 – June 30 (6:00pm – 9:00pm)
June 24 and July 1 (9:00am – 12:00m)

The course main objective is to develop an understanding of the specificities of the cultural approach to brands. The course analyzes how a cultural strategy may help to market values, narratives and codes in order to create economic value. It also questions traditional approaches to marketing and branding by showing that brands create culture rather than merely adapting themselves to existing cultural schemes. The seminar is based on a semiotic and anthropological perspective to understand how brands are built and to analyze how brands can use, produce and market cultural iconicity.

“The cultural contradictions of branding”

Brands have often been analysed using a consistency paradigm according to the classical ideology of marketing which has spread worldwide since the 1950s. The positioning construct and the use of USPs have largely encouraged this monoaxial vision of brands and branding.

Anyhow, brands have to integrate three expectations of the social, political and cultural spheres which are efficiency, equality and personal fulfillement as pointed out by Daniel Bell in the late 1970s. We will thus develop the idea that cultural branding means the resolution of contradictions which define society as well as  indivivuduals. In other words, we will raise the question of whether capitalism does not make us crazy.
