KAALSTAART MANIFESTO1. Art is not a product.
The laws of supply and demand do not apply to art. Let's quit talking about the art market.
2. Art trumps marketing.
A portfolio can't be exhibited. First comes the work, the network follows.
3. What is art without an audience?
Work becomes art when shown in public. Don't for invitations by museums, theaters or galleries. They'll catch up eventually.
4. Art is not made to order.
Artists need to eat, but collective labour agreements don't produce art. So be it.
Exhibit your work at Kaalstaart. Kaalstaart is a traveling group exhibition organized by and for the artists themselves. We scout locations, raise funds and make publicity. The proceeds are shared among the participants.
