Artes (magazine)

Artes (magazine)

Artes was a Swedish cultural magazine about art, music and literature started in 1975 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts and the Swedish Academy. Samfundet De Nio joined soon after. Artes was closed down in 2005 for economic reasons.

Official representative was Horace Engdahl, as permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy. Compared to younger magazines, Artes was known for its stability, genuine quality and as somewhat culturally conservative.

The magazine produced about 600 pages per year in its four issue. The circulation was about 1500 copies at the end. There was also an English-language periodical, Artes International. Artes was financed by subscriptions and subsidies. The academies of music and arts stood for 90 000 Swedish krona each per year, while Swedish Academy contributed the main part with 600 000 per year (about 55 000 EUR, 76 000 USD).
