published by Academy of Fine Arts

This publication came about as a collaboration with the sociologist Johana Chylíková and focuses on the economic, social and cultural inequalities among those studying at art schools in the Czech Republic. Over four chapters, the book presents the results of in-depth interviews with nine respondents. In them, it focuses primarily on themes such as professional aspiration, the ability of those interviewed to interconnect artistic work with art practice and on their free time activities while growing up. It is the first published research of its kind within the context of the Czech Republic. Its objective is to shift the debate about the quality and exclusivity of tertiary-level art education towards the neglected theme of social permeability within the public education system.
