Neue Plattform für Kunstskandale: Artleaks

Gute Idee, jetzt fehlen nur noch die ganz großen Enthüllungen: “Artleaks is collective platform initiated by an international group of artists, curators, art historians and intellectuals in response to the abuse of their professional integrity and the open infraction of their labor rights. In the art world, such abuses usually disappear, but some events bring them into sharp focus and therefore deserve public scrutiny. Only by drawing attention to concrete abuses can we underscore the precarious condition of cultural workers and the necessity for sustained protest against the appropriation of politically engaged art, culture and theory by institutions embedded in a tight mesh of capital and power.” Artleaks ist eine Initative von “Corina L. Apostol, Ph.D student, Rutgers University, NJ, USA; Dmitry Vilensky and David Riff of Chto Delat?, artist collective based in St. Petersburg, Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod, Russia; Jean-Baptiste Naudy of Société Réaliste, artist collective based in Paris, France; Postspectacle, artist collective based in Bucharest, Romania; Raluca Voinea, independent curator and art critic based in Bucharest, Romania; Stefan Tiron of Paradis Garaj, artist collective based in Bucharest, Romania; The Bureau of Melodramatic Research, artist collective based in Bucharest, Romania und Valentina Desideri, freelance performer and choreographer based in Italy.” Via: Mail

  1. Ein interessantes Interview mit den Leuten von artleaks, bezüglich der Ernsthaftigkeit ihres Projekts gibt es hier

  2. Völlig richtig, mit so einem lahmen Kram lockt man niemand hinter dem Ofen hervor. http://art-leaks.org/2011/07/10/a-protest-letter-against-pavilion-unicredits-practices/ Sehe ich das richtig, daß sich da Künstler willfährig in Form eines kulturellen Feigenblättchens vor den kapitalistischen Karren spannen lassen und sich dann aufregen, wenn ihre Narrenfreiheit beschnitten wird? Ich meine, für wie blöd halten die die sponsernde Bank? Bzw. wie wenig haben die ihr Engagement vor der Intervention durchdacht? Albern.
