Brad Buckley & John Conomos - Who Runs the Artworld - Saturday 4th November

Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power & Ethics 

To be launched by Professor Richard Goodwin

with Associate Professor Phillip George as MC

Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power and Ethics examines, using transdisciplinary strategies, the economics and mythologies of today’s global artworld. It unmasks the complex web of relationships that now exist between, high profile curators, collectors, museum trustees and corporate sponsors, and the historic and ongoing complicity between the art and money markets.
It also examines alternative models being deployed by curators and artists influenced by the 2008 global financial crisis and the international socio-political Occupy movement. With a particular focus on a renewed activism by artists, coupled with an institutional and social critique led by groups such as Liberate Tate, the Precarious Workers Brigade and Strike Debt.

Who Runs the Artworld: Money, Power and Ethics
is one of the first books that brings together a diverse range of thinkers. Who draw on the disciplines of art theory, social sciences and cultural economics, and curatorship and the lived experience of artists. The contributors to this book, are in their respective contexts, working at the forefront of these compelling issues.
