Necessity and the executed world
It seems that the world creates necessities which have almost nothing to do with necessities of human beings. Structures are going along musts and to-do´s. The organization of the conditions for success requires energy and attention.
In view of an exhibition with the title St. Credibility and according the question: Does art production follow human necessities and if so how does it appear? Here is a list of a few questions:
Does social appreciation tell us anything about the substance of a sujet?
What is the effect of different forms of social appreciation for the image of the artist?
What is the effect of different forms of social appreciation for the artistic production?
What are the criteria for sense and nonsense?
Is there a difference between the production of art and other production under the conditions of free market economy?
The concept for the exhibition is an ongoing process. So far six artists of EULENGASSE developed works and sketches for that exhibition.
