Germany roles out $54 bn aid for artists, puts others to shame

Mar 28, 2020 09:45 IST

The German federal government has announced a $54 billion aid package for artists and cultural and creative businesses. "Artists are not only indispensable, but also vital, especially now," said the country's culture minister. England’s art council announced a significantly smaller package of $190 million in support, while in New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is calling on the government to give US museums a $4 billion bailout.
