The job of being an artist is characterized by extreme class differences. Poverty and social background are usually either fetishized – or not mentioned at all. The lived reality of artists is defined by less glamourous, non-public sides of the art business – by precarious conditions of production and financial dependency.
The exhibition project examines these complex interrelationships and the often resulting contradictions: both in the choice of works on show and in the accompanying program of discursive events.
