EXPERTISE [fr. expertice]
The artist is an expert in information affecting the senses
and an expert in conceptual representation.
Those who are in control of images and emotions rules the world.
The artist who is supposed to have a certain degree of expertise
in the production distribution and consumption of information
affecting the senses and conceptual representation
is curiously absent from the battlefield in the War of Images.
This, we believe, is no coincidence.
The artist is consciously being withheld from the battlefield.
The artist is put to his isolated studio to produce
already made pictures of yesterday
to be exhibited tomorrow
and viewed when they are already too late.
The visual expertise of the artist is disarmed
The Emergency Artist can’t obey this imposed logic of art production.
The Emergency Artist has to use his expertise where it is of real use.
