the process is the artwork

Free Art!

Anselm Kiefer - Zweistormland/TheHighPriestess, Detail. 1986-89.

Today I finally visited the much acclaimed site UbuWeb, which functions as an utopian, commercial-free archive and distribution center for hard-to-find, out-of-print and obscure artistic works. I just thought I’d share this link, for I believe art should be free and freed from the destructive commercial forces of the market.

I’ve attached a detail of painter/sculptor Anselm Kiefer’s lead library Zweistromland/The High Priestess, which can be seen in the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo, Norway (although funnily enough there is nothing on Kiefer on Ubuweb).

“There is nothing like a dream to create the future. Utopia today, flesh and blood tomorrow.”
Victor Hugo, les Misérables.
