“Art Standards” that Determine the Future of the Country
The German government has made it a political priority to maintain cultural institutions and facilities protecting freelance artists who make a living off of art and culture.
In order to survive the unpredictable, abnormal situation and the uncertain anxiety, it is important to maintain mental health as well as physical health.
Today is the day of the announcement for the LDP election which decides the face of Japan, but I doubt there is any priority for the importance of art and culture.
I can’t think of a country that does not treasure art and culture as developed, so those who are able to vote should consider and vote for “art standards” that are similar to Germany.
Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Monika Grütters stated that:
“Many people are now understanding the importance of culture.
Our democratic society needs its unique and diverse cultural and media landscape in this historical situation, which was unimaginable until recently.
The creative courage of creative people can help to overcome the crisis. We should seize every opportunity to create good things for the future.
That is why the following applies: artists are not only indispensable, but also vital, especially now.”
