The Artist bubble : A qualitative survey of being an artist in Värmland (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate some visual artists' experiences of establishing themselves and acting as professional artists based in the Swedish region of Värmland. To do this I have used Bourdieu's theories about fields of cultural production. I have interviewed four different visual artists in Värmland to get a view of how they have established themselves in the field of art. I have used qualitative content analysis to see what has been significant for their establishment. The results of this study showed that social relationships, economy and cultural capital matters to establish as an artist. The study also showed that the degree of will and driving force among the artists matters a lot when it comes to achieve success in the field of art.
