Nina Gažovičová: The Market Never Sleeps

Recommended admission fee 30 CZK

Workshop is part of the Intensities cycle.


Why is the art market important and how does it influence the situation on the contemporary art scene?

Why today we cannot ignore the existence of the market and why we are still unable to come to terms with a price tag “attached” to artworks? Historian and author of The Market Never Sleeps (2019) Nina Gažovičová will try to explain the market environment in a wider context, describe its functioning, its relation to institutional environment, its basic principles, and its inner logic. Gažovičová will briefly outline the historical context and will explain how our contemporary view of the market was shaped by forty years of the socialist regime and how did this view re-constitute itself after 1989.
