<nettime> alt.religion.artworld


The precariousness of the symbolic economy sustaining this
particular belief system, an alternative religion for
atheists, requires equivalent leaps of faith.

Much conceptual art of the 1970s and 1980s was motivated by
a desire to circumvent or subvert the commodity-based art
market. Now, paradoxically, it is exactly this intellectual
overlay of self-conscious resistance to the purely visual
that collectors and curators desire. For many art world
insiders and art aficionados of other kinds, concept-driven
art is a kind of existential channel through which they
bring meaning to their lives. The art world can often be
opaque and downright secretive, there is status anxiety at
every level.

And once again we sing
And once again we sow
Because life never surrenders."
