L'entreprise-artiste : du déplacement de la question de l'économie dans l'art vers la problématique de l'économie de l'art

Abstract : The art market has completely shifted, and as such, the artist’s role within its ecosystem appears impaired. Artists’ status has become blurred; they are infantilized and used by the art world and market. Crucial questioning thus emerges: Will artists reposition themselves in such a way as to gain autonomy? My own experience has led me to think that creating artist enterprises, with the project of artist-run businesses, could provide an interesting response to the current situation. This approach is anchored in reality and also leaves room for critical thinking in link with research team Art & Flux (a CNRS research team who is working on art, economy & society). My research furthermore combines thoughts and is structured by the ideas developed by Édouard Glissant concerning «Creolization», Gilles Deleuze and FelixGuattari’s «Rhizome», Michel Bauwens thinking about peer-to-peer methods, and Jeremy Rifkin’s research regarding the economics of sharing. My surveys and in-depth conversations with a selection of art world stakeholders have allowed me to carry out a worthwhile analysis of collectors’ changing habits. They appear ever more likely to gradually become connoisseurs, active contributors and users. Thanks to these consistent efforts, the stage of developing a platform of participatory artworks has been reached. This platform is a gateway for artists to gain direct access to their audience. This project’s overarching objective is to render all human riches accessible - beyond purely economic or financial preoccupations - to reinforce connections between people, through sharing and creativity.
