Project 1 The Art Resort
A philosophical inquiry into the model of art followed by an economical study of the art market and by a study of cases of cultural institutions and their models.
The art center functions like a tourist resort. The art, in the art resort, drift from one art center to another like the tourist that enjoys the local customs without touching the reality of the place. The art resort is the model of art production.
An analysis of the agents and the rules of the market serve to clarify that the real problem is the displacement on the demand (is art when reaches the secondary market) and not the lack of collectors etc…The new set of relations among those involved in the art market has change the meaning of art. In the twenty-one century, all art’s agents have been working for the first time together. However this effort is sterile, it has gone to validate their art not to re-define art. An analysis of the agents and the rules of the market serve to clarify that the real problem of the art market is the displacement of the demand and not the lack of collectors.
This theoretical study is followed up by and by study cases of cultural institutions. Only the MACBA project has been translated. Also related is MOMA that you can see here: http://www.fundacionmosis.com/moma1.1.htm
