"I think this article tells us what purpose art world is actually
serving. There is a reason for every supply and demand."
Very interesting -- especially when there is so much going
elsewhere at the edge of art etc...
>I thought this was an interesting article because it spells out something that the art world deliberately obfuscates in order to protect the prestige of everyone involved (not just collectors, but artists, galleries, museums, donors, etc..). I think this article tells us what purpose art world is actually serving. There is a reason for every supply and demand.
>Another example of deliberate obfuscation is rolling papers. They pretend as though they are for rolling cigarettes but in reality people buy them to roll marijuana. The purpose of Q-tips is obfuscated too. We all buy them to clean our ear canals but the company pretends as though we never do (presumably to avoid law suits).
>The art world exists to exalt the social statuses of egotistical men, and the artists are playing dumb, in denial, or truly ignorant of the purpose they are serving.
>This is what I like about digital/net art. It's very bad at serving this purpose.
