Sustainability of artistic production

This diploma thesis deals with the relationship of the Czech art scene to sustainability.
The DT contextualizes the integration of art and ecology with an emphasis on sustainable approaches in the period 1960–2023. It analyzes examples of good practice in the Czech visual arts and examines, on a practical level, how the actors of the contemporary art industry approach sustainability. The sustainability of art is viewed both from the point
of view of the materiality and content of the artistic production, as well as from the point
of view of the functioning in the artistic operation. The DT looks for possibilities
and offers potential starting points for sustainable artistic practice in the context
of the legislative framework of Czech and international cultural policy.
