Conference: "radius of art" The next revolution will not be funded - Ruth Wilson Gilmore
The next revolution will not be funded
Is art to be understood as a philosophically acting entity – a brand of modernism that is revolutionary and perpetually unfinished – for which a public still has to be invented? Or will art only be encouraged, supported, and recognised if it does justice to prescribed criteria and merely “supplies” a culture industry? The consequence would be that important projects – projects difficult to grasp, “incomprehensible” by nature – would fall through the net of funding structures and media.
