ARTƎCONOMY® is an artistic movement that blends art and economy, transforming the latter into an essential and constitutive element of the work of art and making the role of the artist superfluous. The idea comes from Five Gallery, an art gallery in Lugano (Switzerland), as a provocative response to the now disproportionate weight that finance and economics have assumed in the world of art.
ARTƎCONOMY® is the denunciation of this deviant development, which has manifested itself in the art world in an ever increasing way in the last decades.
ARTƎCONOMY® eliminates the figure of the artist and paradoxically uses terms and concepts of the financial world to definitively make
evident the imbalance between art and economy in favor of the latter
Art has always been provocation: ARTƎCONOMY is the ultimate provocation.
