Who Runs the Artworld : Money, Power and Ethics

Who Runs the Artworld : Money, Power and Ethics

Description

Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power and Ethics examines the economics and mythologies of today's global
artworld. It unmasks the complex web of relationships that now exist among high-profile
curators, collectors, museum trustees and corporate sponsors, and the historic
and ongoing complicity between the art and money markets.

The book
examines alternative models being deployed by curators and artists influenced
by the 2008 global financial crisis
and the international socio-political Occupy movement, with a particular focus
on a renewed activism by artists. This activism is coupled with an
institutional and social critique led by groups such as Liberate Tate, the
Precarious Workers Brigade and Strike Debt.

Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power and Ethics brings together a diverse range of thinkers who draw on the
disciplines of art theory, social sciences and cultural economics, and
curatorship and the lived experience of artists. The contributors to this book
are, in their respective contexts, working at the forefront of these compelling
issues.
