Representation of Interest

Our society has adapted art into its mainstream culture. Artistic merits like “creativity” or “innovation” have shifted into the world of commerce and the art world has arrived on the global market.

Every artist should profi t from this – but in reality, now, more than ever, artists pay the price: A high recognition is pared with a precarious existence – more pushed to become commercial competitors, than creative collaborators. Art is cultivated as a collective effort of extreme individualists.

Recognition and reward, fame and fortune may wait for some, in view to centuries of art history, this might seem fair – hardly ever to the many.
Above all: it’s hardly about wealth.

It’s about working conditions, the studio space, materials, a journey, a book, and a free headspace. It’s about production.
It’s about infrastructure.

It’s about the representation of interests.
