"In these times, we know that everything can be an artwork. Or rather, everything can be turned into an artwork by an artist. There is no chance of a #spectator distinguishing between an #artwork and a “simple thing” on the basis of the spectator’s visual experience alone. The spectator must first know a particular object to be used by an #artist in the context of his or her artistic practice in order to identify it as an artwork or as a part of an artwork.
But who is this artist, and how can he or she be distinguished from a non-artist—if such a distinction is even possible? To me, this seems a far more interesting question than that of how we can differentiate between an artwork and a “simple thing.” Meanwhile, we have a long #tradition of institutional #critique. During the last few decades, the role of #collectors, #curators, #trustees, #museum directors, #gallerists, #art #critics, and so forth has been extensively analyzed and criticized by #artists. But what about the artists themselves? ... ...Let us remember #JosephBeuys ’ well-known #maxim: “Everybody is an artist.” This maxim has a long tradition, going back to early #Marxism and the #Russian avant-garde, and is therefore almost always characterized today—and was already characterized in Beuys’ time—as utopian. This maxim is usually understood as an expression of a #utopian hope that, in the future, the mankind that currently consists predominantly of non-artists becomes a mankind consisting of artists. ..." - A fragment from ' #TheWeakUniversalism ' by #BorisGroys ; #e_flux , #Journal 15, April 2010.
