Never has contemporary art been so popular as it is now; never has its audience been so big. In the rapidly changing and vastly expanding art world one thing hasn’t changed, however: it is the artist that remains at the center of artistic universe.
In fascinating and personal interviews seventeen outstanding contemporary artists reflect on what does it mean to be an artist today. Artists such as Carl Andre, Michael Borremans, Mark Bradford, Damien Hirst, Robert Longo, Sarah Lucas, Danh Vo and more speak about what the work and life of an artist can look like now, testifying to the diversity and variability of that position. By doing so, they provide a great material to analyze the most urgent questions of the current art system. What artistic values should prevail? How to define the artist when the notions of shaman, revolutionary and bohemian are no longer valid? What is the relationship between artist and their public? How to stay relevant for the artist herself/himself and for the world?
