The Dutch situation

For the Norwegian art magazine Billedkunst Jack Segbars was asked to write an article reflecting on the austerity measurements on the arts in the Netherlands.

Other authors: Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt on England, Daria Corberia on Spain, The Filopappou Group on Greece, Mélyi József on Hungary.

If Europe today is generally marked by austerity measures, these measures are austere to different degrees and are tied to different ideological agendas and they have also triggered different responses. The aim with this series of letters from Europe is to highlight both the local particularities and the similarities across national borders.
