Aesthetics, Trading of Time and Creativity, 2005

2005, Aesthetics, Trading of Time and Creativity, 28/11, Mart-Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto, Rovereto (In the Melotti auditorium of the Mart in Rovereto, during the proceedings of the international conference Linking Creativity and Culture for an Innovative Local Development (28th November 2005).)

The dean of Economics opens an auction for the actual sale and purchase of “futures” of various subjects whose creativity is fought over in the form of available shares. The auction is mediated by a trader, while several young girls and boys wearing coloured jackets act as gophers between the audience and the artist, collecting the money and issuing re-printed receipts. Presented as a speaker, the artist does not speak, but mediates the purchase, issues a receipt and transfers the amount by bank transfer to the respective creatives.
