Zine, Against Competition
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.
