Artists’ Survival Kit
|Author||Alexandra Bachzetsis; Andrea Bellini e.a.|
Beneath the glamorous surface of the art world – the openings and dinner parties, the record-breaking auction prices, the media attention – lies a reality that is precarious, complex, and very often existential: only a tiny minority of artists support themselves with their work and fewer still manage to do so throughout their lives. This book tells those other stories, for example of artistic practices grounded in performance, research, and political activism. These practices are not necessarily oriented toward producing marketable objects.
