Artservis wouldn't make sense without the lively market of the multifaceted art & culture production as shaped & shaken by the national & transnational cultural policies, and by the interests of the private capital. However, the circumstances of the market are never brought upon us - we either support, accept, bypass, subvert or replace them.
To keep this reciprocal impact in mind we offer you some further reading:
Alen Ožbolt - On Money (2002)
1, 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, 1,000,000. An intriguing artist's text on measure and price of art. Includes the documents from 1990 (VSSD) and 2001.
Alenka Pirman - Art Service (2002)
Written 6 months after the launching of Artservis, its editor depicts the project's background and its aspirations.
Alexei Shulgin -
Art, Power, and Communication (1996)
