Is your museum a commons or a zoo? (Still Water blog)

"In the market paradigm found in museum gift shops and universities dining halls, common spaces are often designed to attract visitors to spend money. In the zoo paradigm, as exemplified by Facebook, exhibiting private behaviors in public is the engine for a hidden economy. In a tribe, meanwhile, the purpose of economic transactions is to cement social bonds, rather than the other way around."

(Notes on) Politics, Theory & Photography: Museums as Money Laundering Institutions

Jim Johnson in regards to the protests surrounding BP funding of the arts: "I think we need to dispense with the moralism. What precisely is the alternative you propose? Government funding for the arts? Some sort of list of 'socially responsible' patrons? (How, in constructing such a list, do we decide which sins are the most egregious?) The art world (and the intellectual world more generally) is, let's face it thoroughly infused with commercial and political pressures. What is the alternative you are proposing?"
