Aim 1: appendix
- We are concerned by the threat of the instrumentalisation of the artistic field by a wholesale internalisation of corporate values, methods and models. This can be seen everywhere from art schools, to museums and galleries, and even the studios of artists!
The complexity and diversity of contemporary art practice has exceeded traditional patronage models of financial remuneration. The buying and selling of artifacts cannot encompass the complex mix of research, self employment, employment, under-employment, enterprise, continuous study and professional development that characterise contemporary art practice. Um,...... we'd like to think about this.
