About the Journal

14 April 2011 the Academic Council of the State Institute for Art Studies made the decision to set up an academic reviewed electronic periodical journal Art & Culture Studies. It is published by the State Institute for Art Studies (SIAS) and financially supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.

The journal publishes works on the history and theory of art, social functioning of art & culture, interdisciplinary research in the philosophy of culture, aesthetics, culturology, sociology, psychology and the economics of culture. Priority is given to works whose authors offer new approaches to examining art & culture and new art practices. The journal publishes parts of monographs which are being prepared for publication, papers presented at conferences, archival publications and re-publications of materials which have become a bibliographic rarity, reviews of new books on art & culture, presentations of new publications and announcements of coming events which are particularly important for the professional community. The editors also intend to gradually increase publication of materials in European languages.

The periodical is published four times a year.
