Is there anyone asking the same Questions?
February 3, 2008
My question yesterday was “What makes Art really Big Art and Who decides this”? No-one has commented this yet and I don’t think that I am the only one who dares to ask these questions. Maybe this is just so boring and uninteresting that no-one cares about it or this is such a hot iron on the contrary that a comment would be highly dangerous??? I admit today you have to be careful about what you are saying otherwise you are easily imprinted with something that sticks forever on you….
I am a very curious person and I ask many questions because I want to really know. I already bugged my parents at an early age with this and probably drove them into insanity.
I cannot imagine that there is no-one out there who does not ask these questions from time to time. I am here and blogging and putting all these inquiries into the air because there is simply no-one near me who could answer any of these questions. That’s the simple truth. I am working on my own, hardly have the time to go somewhere else at the moment and meet people on an occasional base. I have simply no time for socializing and my contacts are all far away. So even if you don’t believe this, the Internet is currently my only chance to get into contact with other people in order to discuss these kinds of things. So please – folks – creep out of your holes and tell me what you know or what you think so that I don’t die ignorant.
Maybe this question is irrelevant or has been answered multiple times by professional writers and critics. But instead of a long-winded discourse I would rather like to hear some answers which come from your gut-feeling and actual experience. Theory and practical life often diverge wildly and I am currently more interested in real life not theories.
Maybe I am touching a holy cow here but we live in a free place and we are allowed to ask questions – right? We may not get answers but we should try. How can we learn if we don’t ask questions? And why would we always have to wait for things to happen if we can do something to make them happen? So right away – let me hear what you have to say – I look forward to it! Even if I don’t like it…
What is it that gets gallery owners, curators and critics ecstatic about an artist’s work to be added to famous walls?
