BUY YOUR OWN ART EXPERIENCE
2007-2010, interactive photoperformance,
photography, video

One of the fundamental problems of the art world, the art market and last but not least art in general is their attachment to the original as some kind of fetish, which of course is properly evaluated as all the other society’s fetishes installed into a specific hierarchical valorisation system through valorisation criteria. The project Buy Your Own Art Experience explores and exposes the issue of idealisation of art and the artist, the valorisation system of artworks and capital produced through the culture industry.
