• The proverbial prestige of artists and cultural workers skilfully conceals the nature of work in this field, dominated by unrecognized and unpaid work. Where, until recently, there were stable jobs, atypical forms of work prevail today, and with them a growing reserve army of cheap labor.

  • Challenges and hopes during political reconstruction
    The collapse of the socialist bloc during the early 1990s not only wiped entire political systems off the map.
