<== Site of the Week for 2017-12-28 ==>
Fine Art Group
The web site Fine Art Group advertises a company gives investment advise about art and helps people take out loans against their art.
I wanted to link to it because this shows the static thinking that dominates the art world. This expensive service concentrates only on the top end of the art world and looks like it caters only to the wealthiest art collectors.
The site shows the type of thinking that prevails when the art world is dominated by single transactions.
If we want to have a world that actively engages the middle and lower classes in collecting and creating art, we need to create a widely distributed mechanism that encourages people to own and collect lower end art.
