«Et skritt tilbake?»: Valg av kunstnerkarriere blant unge med innvandrerbakgrunn og familiens aspirasjon om sosial mobilitet
2012 (Norwegian)In: Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidskrift, ISSN 1403-3216, E-ISSN 2000-8325, no 1, 97-120 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Artists with migrant background represent a new, but still relatively small group in the Norwegian cultural life and arts production. Their situation has been the subject of public attention, both in cultural policy debates and through cultural policy initiatives. Research on this group of Norwegian artists has however been scarce. This article is based on 20 in-depth qualitative interviews with people who were born in or moved to Norway as a child. Their parents moved to Norway from countries such as Vietnam, India and Pakistan. We thus study the «second-generation» exclusively, i.e. people who from this social position seek out artistic careers. They are actors, dancers, visual artists, authors and musicians. The focus in the article is on their family backgrounds and the minority communities, and how these generate social mechanisms that confront young people with migrant background what regards educational and occupational choices. These mechanisms, related to social networks, cultural backgrounds and especially social class and mobility, are important reasons behind the low participation of ethnic minority groups in the arts production. The main finding is that artistic careers are viewed, in many migrant groups and especially the parent generation, as a «step back» in terms of social mobility.
