Comment

My recent research is about socio-political artwork and how they are changed. For decades internet has replaced traditional art institutions as the main platform for the production and distribution of art. And now it is the place of production and exposure of art at the same time. This change affected artist, I am interested how they-politically engaged artist- are affected by this social change.
