Symposium Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart
»Professionalisierung oder Liebhaberei?« Lecture, Podium, Discussion
Today, being a professional means, to know and to be able to do everything necessary to market one’s own »production«: professionalisation-offers addressed to artists assume that artistic success is synonymous with the transformation of art as a commodity into black figures on the bank account. Correspondingly, they focus on the procurement of skills, which ought to secure a successful self-marketing on the art market.
 
However doesn’t the alternative, the »Liebhaberei« (non-acquisitive activity, hobby) provide greater opportunity to individually formulate and realize artistic interests, for the reason that pros don’t have the time for artistic activities that interfere in social design processes anymore? Or is it unnecessary to play off one thing against the other because they are both useless for the project »artist«?
