Questions as artists (both art students and real practicing artists) should ask themselves

“a few Questions for artists (in relation to the academy) … How can a free artist accept this managed and managerlized condition?

how can an artist exist without or outside the institution? why are so many mature artists so happy with competing for small prizes, purchases and praises?

 why are there still artists who think its an honor to serve on a jury to judge other artists work?
is it too optimistic 2 think perhaps somenew activity among artists – possibly towards a true modern academy? – could free the circumstances again?

am i feelin too pessamistic to feel a great doubt about this?”
