PORTRAIT: THE (FAILED) AUTONOMY OF THE ARTIST
Discussion with Omsk Social Club and Ed Fornieles at Liste Basel.
“Artists need a way to break free from their dependency on public funding, private donors, and the vagaries of the market. Searching for greater freedom, some create new economic structures to preserve the independence of artistic production. But what are the new financing models that can rival the established ones? At Liste Basel’s Spike Forum, Ed Fornieles and Omsk Social Club presented their latest projects and sat down to talk about new alternatives to the existing art market.”
