Working towards a manifesto

From Silvie Jacobi:

‘The public value of space and time needs to be renegotiated before fine art practice in an educational context can somehow be autonomous (from an increasing economisation of education). Artists and artistic positions in my view cannot organically grow within a system that pushes them to immediate economic success. This would mean that any artistic work they develop is pushed towards immediate liquidation, which takes away the intrinsic value of art. So let me come back to time and space, which are necessary for artistic practices to mature. These two factors are becoming commodities themselves which push art schools to drive up tuition fees in order to stay competitive within urban contexts that exploit time and space. This is when we return to questions around ‘The Right to the City’…who has the right to preserve public values?’
