European Cultural Policies 2015: A Report with Scenarios on the Future of Public Funding for Contemporary Art in Europe
A collaboration between Iaspis, eipcp and åbäke
From the introduction:
In 2015 art is almost completely instrumentalised in the economic sense, regardless of whether financing is private or public. Art then services either national or European interests that wish to construct a certain identity: it is a desirable marketable commercial good for private ownership and it contributes to regional development and provides society with new creative employment opportunities.
