Art and the State

St Antony's Series
The Visual Arts in Comparative Perspective
Preface Introduction The American System of Support for the Arts: Artists and Art Museums Enterprise Culture in British Art Policy Art, Art Institutions, and the State in the Welfare States of Norway and Sweden East German Art Before and After the End of Communism Changing States: Russian Immigrant Artists in the United States Conclusion References
This book examines the impact of states and their policies on visual art. States shape the role of art and artists in society, influence the development of audiences, support artistic work, and even affect the very nature of artistic production. The book contrasts developments in the United States with art policies in Britain and in the social democratic states of Norway and Sweden. In addition, it analyzes revealing transitions - the changes brought about in East Germany after unification and the experiences of artists who left the Soviet Union for the west. The result is a significant contribution to the sociology and the political economy of art.
