Chapter 15: Artists earnings and labour markets1

Trine Bille


Artists’ earnings and labour market behaviour have been studied for a long time in cultural economics. The research has mainly been concentrated around artists’ income conditions, how artists behave on the labour market and structural conditions in this particular labour market. The important questions are: Is the artists’ labour market different from other labour markets? How is it different? Why is it different? The chapter focuses on important topics such as: the definition of artists, the low average income and skewed income distribution, the work-preference model, the superstar model, the role of education and the excess supply of artists.
