The government says it is keeping sacred art on the list of projects that could benefit from Rouanet
The Ministry of Culture issued a letter this Friday evening (24), stating that it maintains sacred art in the list of projects.
The Ministry of Culture issued a note this Friday evening (24th) stating that it is keeping sacred art on the list of projects that can be considered under the Law of Rouen.
According to the text, with the new decree on the laws promoting culture, sacred art is no longer a separate sector and is again classified as an artistic genre.
“However, within the framework of the linguistic division provided by law, for example, if it is an art exhibition, then the sacred art will be in the visual arts, while if the project concerns the restoration of churches, then the sacred art will be heritage.”
Sacred art was introduced as a special language under Bolsonaro’s government in a 2021 decree.
The document stipulated that names specializing in the sacred arts must be nominated by the National Commission for the Promotion of Culture, Cnic, which evaluates and makes the final decisions that cultural projects can or cannot raise funds through tax exemptions.
As with any other form of visual art, Ruane could already think of sacred art in the past, what was done was to pay more attention to it. At the time, experts criticized the move, saying it was a demagogic decision.
