[NetBehaviour] The strange tale of Rhizome and its Arts Council funding

I understand the principes of the discussion but I thought we were now
beyond this kind of discussion. I worked as a freelance consultant for the
European Community and the funds were tailored for projects needing at leat
three countries to apply. There were a djungle of small enterprises
connecting Bulgarian museums with Spanish artists and Swedish musicians,
the most of the applications were bogus and didn't have another effect than
giving them the conditions to apply. But they were not real networks and
their cooperation ended when the project money was divided between them.
I feel we have created a bureaucracy managing subventions and deciding
which groups are worth to support or not, but who watches the watchers?
Qui custodiam custodians?
