Release for the re: re Art Podcast where Alvaro Campo and My Lindh enter into a dialogue with artists, curators and actors in the art field on sustainability in the arts.
In the first episode, we listen to the Finnish-based curator Taru Elfving in a conversation about artists’ mobility historically, in the present and in the future. The internationalization of the art world is based on the idea of the nomadic artist, who can travel around the world and be inspired, without roots or commitments (ref. Miwon Kwon: One place after another. 1997). A measure of success has been the degree of mobility through participation in fairs, biennials, conferences and residences. But in practice, very few artists can participate. We examine the origins of these ideas and how alternatives can be established.
