Cultural Policy in the Federal Republic of Germany. Studies and Documents on Cultural Policies.
A survey of cultural policy in the Federal Republic of Germany, prepared for UNESCO, is one of a series showing how cultural policies are planned and implemented. A brief general description of how the federal government, the Lander governments, and the municipal and local authorities cooperate to promote cultural life is presented in an introduction. The study does not describe the full range of cultural life but rather is limited to providing an account of the situation in individual cultural sections. It outlines various problems and trends, and describes the relationship and cooperation between the authorities and agencies which deal with cultural policy. Topics discussed are culture and the state, institutions and instruments, cultural sections, training of artists and art teachers, and art education. A summary notes the tendency toward a broader definition of cultural life beyond its traditional areas and the integration of many spheres of cultural life with other aspects of social life.
