abstract
Using the state subsidy-archive for visual arts, this study focuses on how visual artists in Flanders have legitimated their artistic work between 1965-2015. The main objective is to provide a historical sociological analysis of how discourses about art (and its relation to society) evolved during this period characterized by significant macro-sociological changes.
