|REMARKS: ||An extension of the target: autonopop
exhibition/workshop/concert/debate series, "unlimited liability" is a store which sells artists multiples for 30 euros and less: stickers, DVDs, CDs, posters, zines, t-shirts, buttons, food, services, and works
whose form is to be determined in the course of
exchange with the purchaser.
The only media excluded are painting and drawing.
What makes the project different from multiples-shops and "affordable art" fairs is that it attempts to take
the democratization-of-art project into as-yet
untested waters. The DIY approach of alternative
production/distribution is protected by a firewall
This is done by a legal contract which stipulates that no purchaser may have more than 50,000 euros in assets, subject to penalty in case of false
disclosure. The art-gallery world partition of
audiences - those who merely "appropriate symbolically" on the one side, "real buyers" on the other - thereby inverted. Those able to buy at "unlimited liability" belong to social groups excluded (due to their
insufficient ressouces) from buying on the art market. This state of affairs is "shown" as much as the works on sale. 9 June to 13 August 2007. |
