Art is located in the continuous and inevitable process of closing itself within the institutionalized frames, directions, trends, and brands. It becomes the illustration of theoretical postulates, the means of the cultural policy, a part of the industry of culture, and even a part of the industry of entertainment, or is simply reduced to the individual hobby of those who produce it. In the era when the postulates of the avant-garde and the radical modernism dominated, there existed at least some faith in the negatory potential which is carried by the artist himself and achieved in his works, but this faith had been proclaimed naive long time ago, while the art system scored the triumphal victory over the individual attitude… Is there any space for autonomous artwork?
