Artists on the Market
Venue: TU Berlin, Senate Room H 1035/1036, Straße des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin
Date: 13/11/2015, 6:15 pm – 7:45 pm; 14/11/2015, 9:15 am – 6 pm
Fourth Workshop of the Forum Kunst und Markt / Centre for Art Market Studies at the department of Modern Art History, Technische Universität Berlin
The fourth workshop of the Forum Kunst und Markt is devoted to the strategies of artists operating on the art market. Historically, the decreasing dominance of the patronage of the courts and churches did not automatically lead to an increase in artists’ autonomy as it also augmented their dependence on a quickly growing and increasingly diversified art market. We aim to investigate the respective strategies and ranges of action available between artistic freedom and financial success.
