Letting Whatever The Art World Says Enter Our Minds Unchallenged
Despite our self-image as great tellers-of-truth, as artists, we tend to be establishment-oriented because, on a basic level, our entire identity depends on being recognised by the super wealthy (either directly, or through distributed networks). Often we appear unaware of this because it's an inconvenient truth. Finding out what's really happening requires looking past place-making narratives as the art - world pours into our heads. We must learn why it is we live and work as we do now. Where our fantasies and ignorance come from - and which powers they serve. In an exploitative society, the art - world serves the establishment and regulates the rest. It's literally based on representation, driven by wealth.
