I checked into Grain Edit this morning to see what was new, was side-tracked from there to looking into the Max Huber issue of IDEA Magazine along with the Huber monograph published by Phaidon, and ended up with an article on something called "voluntary art." Interesting term. It seems almost redundant. I don't think of "voluntary breathing," I just breathe.
The same with art. I can think of nothing "involuntary" about my art (except, maybe, the need to create stuff) and nothing can keep me from doing it. Including lack of funds. So there you go, I've been a Voluntary Artist all along and never realized it.
The issue of public funding of art through the "government’s coercively gathered funds" is something I haven't given much thought to until I saw this article .
