Sample text

While so much contemporary art today that is socially based would seem to be just the opposite of this notion of self-exclusion in its focus on the agency of community, in fact the dissolution of the artist’s self in the crowd is precisely this act of self-infection by the bacilli of the social. And so this infection of the market and politics, of what was once conceived as intolerable to the rules of art’s identity, is unavoidable and the artist’s body undergoes within the academy all the stages of the bacilli’s intrusion: shock to the system, weakness, resistance, adaptation, renewal.

Some of these new ideas produced agitations for politically and ideologically motivated violence on a global scale. EDUCATION BY INFECTION 29 Today’s art students are attacked from all the sides by religious, philosophical, ideological, and political discourses of different kinds. Most of these discourses are critical, most of them proclaim their deep discontent with the state of the world, and most of them want to provoke a change in attitudes and in the actions of society. It would seem that an enormous amount of art is specifically concerned with social praxis, with using “critical theories” of different provenance to address not only social issues but the practice of art making itself.

Given this, it should not come as a surprise that I have had such a difficult time salvaging the notion of tradition as transmission. The idea of opening Villa Arson’s educational functions to a variety of different publics translates the indeterminacy of the channels of transmission of art since Manet and duly notes it. Yet the omission of the “general public” from the potential publics of the Villa is, in my opinion, an unfortunate and very significant oversight, perhaps this project’s most outstanding lapse, because it is the result of a restricted conception of the artworld.
