Where is the art world located?



by Moogee, 03.21.07 02:24 pm



I was amused by your august journal’s City names on the front of your web page. According to this Nottingham U.K. is not a part of the IAW (International Art World) and neither is Chicago which I find distressing for those poor artists there. I would love some advice on how long this state of affairs has pertained and with government funding we may be able to relocate to somewhere that is in the IAW immediately thus rectifying the situation.

( note: Chicago was added since yesterday:-)


yours



a proud provincial

...the Artworld does not exist - that ist just another cyber illusion and invention of some people who believe they are the middle of the world.
The problem is, everybody believes he or she is the middle of the world - and hence we got the problem.
Interesting Places grow, when interesting people meet - and then it doesn't matter wether this is in Nottingham, in Bitterfeld in New York or Somesmallshittownsomewhere.
The ones who believe they are the art world are wrong, as well as those who believe they are not part of the game.
Whatever will come out of the culture of our time is to be seen in 100, 200 or 500 years - as well as the big deceptions.
Who will then talk about big curators or museum directors? About critics or art historians?
It will be artists work, that will remain. Hopefully.
