Part Four, Tearing A Hole In The Grey Curtain

    If an artist is engaged in a transactional or strategic relationship with a brand or company, perhaps this needs to be viewed in a different sense to the behaviours and relationships of the average consumer. Little space for change is allowed if all behaviour is vilified beyond reasonable discussion. The overused adage that there is no ethical consumption under capitalism implies a crude power dynamic of the system oppressing the subject at every turn. However perhaps artists do indeed have power to make choices, be they relatively small or large. They are the ones with the ideas, the talent, the artistic capital, and therefore, the leverage.
