Abstract
Since the 1980s, continental European arts organizations have been investing considerably in marketing and organizational management, resulting in an increased professionalization of management, generally larger budgets, more substantial subsidies, as well as rising overhead costs. The question arises whether this process of the professionalization of management has been to the benefit of the one with whom the artistic process starts and ends, namely the individual performing artist. This article examines the current position of individual artists in the context of Flemish arts policy. The research results presented are based on an analysis of official data on the cost and revenue structure of Flemish performing arts organizations. The findings from Flanders confirm the internationally observed paradox: although the arts have been largely embedded within organizational and management structures, the situation of individual artists has become more vulnerable.
