The Reserve Elite
Juliane Zelwies' artistic research project The Reserve Elite explore the habitus of artists.
When people are asked what they think of artists or of the art world, the response is often not particularly positive. Artists are frequently portrayed as narcissistic, arrogant and in the worst case as those, who live on tax payers money. At the same time, the art world is put on a level with the art market and the few cases come to mind when newspapers reported on an artwork which was sold for many millions at an auction house.
In my artistic research project The Reserve Elite I have been exploring the habitus of artists (i.e. how their beliefs and ethics are reflected in their work performance and communication), both among each other and in exchange with other art professionals and the public.
In my talk, I will look at examples of contemporary art and question what is at stake for contemporary artists today, thus revealing a part of the art world which is usually hidden from the public eye.
