In the study “From project to project: work and employment in the cultural sector” Jaka Primorac analyzes the field of cultural production from the perspective of work and working conditions of cultural workers. The study focuses on the cultural and political framework, as well as on the employment structure and characteristics of work in the cultural sector, indicating the consequences of ‘’projectization’’ of cultural production: growing insecurity and underpayment of a great number of cultural workers and artists. In addition, Jaka Primorac puts forward a demand for developmental public policies that would enable paid work and better working conditions in the cultural field, as well as preservation of culture as public good.
Excerpts from reviews:
"The starting point of the study is the current social and economic position of cultural workers. At the same time, however, it broadens the reasons for cultural work not being recognized and perceived as work, finding arguments in both historical and sociopolitical processes. This is what makes the study not merely an overview, but also an analysis, which can be used for direct advocacy in debates.’’ (VALERIJA BARADA)
"Drawing from a vast knowledge of problems related to the flexible, project-based type of work in culture, the author poses a number of questions and advocates new forms of funding for work which should be paid fairly within the system ‘in which culture and art are perceived as public good’.’’ (BISERKA CVJETIČANIN)
