Demographischer Wandel Und Kulturelle Infrastruktur: Auswirkungen Und Handlungsansätze


  • Dreyer, Matthias
  • Hübl, Lothar


The cultural sector cannot avoid the effects of demographic change. The aging society, the shrinking population as well as emigration and immigration are presenting cultural institutions with considerable challenges. A complex analysis of the initial situation in each case is essential if those involved - artists, cultural policy-makers and patrons of the arts - are to give long-term direction to their actions. This paper sketches the fundamental interaction among arts, culture and demographic change and examines basic strategies for action in the cultural sector.
