The Meaning of the art Truth
Many talented artists who have the right to deserve attention and publication are, on the contrary, forced to endure ostracism and a priori exclusion from the haughty, self-referential world of art publishing (which has become a sort of Kasbah!). The same people are indifferent to their fate, intent as they are on looking after their own personal career interests, and the publishers themselves are almost totally uninterested for reasons, they maintain, that are purely economic or because they are unwilling to promote a product that would otherwise be publicized and launched before another product that, albeit mediocre, has already proven its worth and is easier to market. Whatís more, there are artists who have been accorded privileges even though they donít deserve them, and who hope to maintain them while trusting that no other artist will be discovered, published or made famous. Itís a hard life, therefore, for neo-artists in this cynical context. (excerpt)
