  Poor rich Artists in Berlin
Christian Saehrendt wrote an very interesting article discussing the living conditions of Berliner Artists in the Swiss Neue Z├╝rcher Zeitung, read the full article here

5000 professional artists are officially registered in Berlin, although the estimates are much higher.

15 percent of artists in Berlin make a living by their art, the others are working in jobs as bar-men, web-designer, teachers.

There are around 55 000 artists (Fine Art) in Germany with an average income of 10 000 Euro per year, beginners around 7500 Euro.

The average artist has 750 Euro income per month, but a share of 15% of the questioned artists have no income at all.

Berlin has around 5000 art students of those about 700 graduates each year.

"Das Ende der Boheme"
paints a mixed picture of Berlins artists hopes and realities. Some few younger artists have success on the booming market, others share a growing number of lucky heirs, but the mayority fights hard for dreams and existence as art-proletarian.
