Artists in Offices: An Ethnography of an Academic Art Science
Universities have become important sources of patronage and professional artistic preparation. With the growing academization of art instruction, young artists are increasingly socialized in bureaucratic settings, and mature artists find themselves working as organizational employees in an academic setting. As these artists lose the social marginality and independence associated with an earlier, more individual aesthetic production, much cultural mythology about work in the arts becomes obsolete.
What people are saying - Write a review
The author has made some good points about the art school system as it pertains to creativity and autonomy versus the stereotypical 9 to 5 and how these two aspects sometimes combine inadvertently. However, her writing style is absolutely terrible. So many of her points could have been simplified. I could not follow her writing, simply because of the excruciatingly long sentences and overly elevated diction. It was very pretentious.
