Is filmmaking a better career option

Women in art and culture

What is the status of equality between men and women in publicly funded cultural institutions in Germany? What attitudes and barriers, if any, are responsible for gender equality goals that have not been achieved? The study carried out on behalf of the Frauenkulturbüro NRW provides answers to these questions using the example of NRW, the largest German state. A current online survey of the cultural institutions funded by the state was included in the data analysis. In order to shed light on the subjective dimensions of the gender equality problem, the data collection was supplemented by narrative individual interviews with young and well-established artists and cultural managers. The volume documents gender relations in theaters and philharmonic orchestras, in art collections and literature, for architects and visual artists, for music festivals and film funding - and not least at art and music colleges.
