“Complex and thought -provoking art is having a harder time then ever, not only to come about but also to circulate beyond an already converted audience. (…) entertaining and easily digestible art is becoming more and more prevalent-in the public eye, almost synonymous with “art” itself. Both developments are connected with new power dynamics in the wake of globalization, neoliberal policies of deregulation and financialization, and the boom of the commercial art market. (…) the criteria of economic efficiency invade art production as well as curating, it is necessary to scrutinize the mechanisms at play and what they generate.”
Maria Lind from “Contemporary art and its commercial markets. A report on current conditions and future scenarios – Maria Lind and Olav Velthuis (eds.)
