About Work

July 18 – October 23, 2022

People often talk about finding the right balance between work and life. For artists, these two areas are only part of a far more open concept. Experience shows that in this the subject of work is situated in two crucial fields: that of gainful employment and that of artistic work. The quantitative relationship between these two fields depends on innumerable factors. Ideally they overlap and artistic work generates income.

According to a survey from 2018, this seems to be the case only for 10% of all artists, which means that a majority of creatives do odd jobs for a living, while others work in art education or as service providers in the art world.

In addition to daily living expenses, there are costs for a studio, rehearsal space and materials. This in turn places higher demands on gainful employment, the expected wage and the time spent doing it.

The situation is similar for artists with an attributed cognitive impairment, but in many cases there are complex systems behind the various fields such as work, leisure and participation in society. This also applies to artists at Atelier Goldstein.
