abstract
We offer a historical-sociological analysis that looks into how characteristics of art and artists are associated with receiving state support. Using visual artists’ applications for subsidies between 1965 and 1999 we can relate social characteristics of artists and aesthetic dimensions of their work to subsidies and frame these relationships historically in the political and artistic context.
