Summary/Abstract: The author presents the main rules of cultural policy introduced by André Malraux, who ran the French Ministry of culture in the years 1959-1969. Malraux, who aimed to "give to the largest possible number of citizens access to the great works of culture (particularly French culture)", assigned to his department a special role in popularising culture and bridging differences between the province and the capital. Even though later the writer met with the accusation of designing a model based on an excessive interference of the state into the realm of culture, one cannot overestimate his insights into the special place of culture and art in social life.
