Abstract (English)

This publication documents multimedia works by nine emerging artists concerned with “materials and subject matter of everyday life.” Anderson’s essay explores the realities of “self-subsidized autonomy” within the artists’ practices, and situates their works within the contexts of artist-run culture and Bourdieu’s model of the art world. Clements focuses on the notion of “state-subsidized autonomy,” and the impact that public funding has on making, distributing and exhibiting art. Includes statements by the artists (in response to a questionnaire on economic aspects of art production). Biographical notes. 5 bibl. ref.
