Catalog Number:

Abstract: 
Marc Fischer wrote "Against Competition" in 2006. The essay takes on the pervasive and corrosive problem of competition that exists and is created between artists by a market-driven art system. The essay also explores productive collaborative models in art, as well as in underground music subcultures whose approaches to generosity and working together might be something for artists to learn from. (Abstract from http://www.halfletterpress.com) This 2014 publication includes an afterword that reflects on how global changes in technology inform Fischer's original piece.

Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television

Catalog Number: 
Journal, Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television
Date: 
April 2005
Issue: 
1
Abstract: 
Continuing stereotypes of art and artists in mainstream media reveal to us the real impact (or lack thereof) that artists have on the world around them. The minimal presence of living, working, visual artists in these media spheres contributes to the kinds of generalizations and misunderstandings that many people seem to have about the power and function of the visual arts. It is our contention that by continually watching, cataloging,and analyzing these portrayals, artists can also gain a better understanding of their own responsibilities to their viewers and how the stereotypes hurt their ability to effectively communicate their ideas. *
