    This is a book by very wealthy art collector Adam Lindemann It consists mostly of interviews with high level blue chip dealers I mean gallerists apparently calling someone who deals art a dealer is an insult these days super wealthy collectors art consultants and auctioneers with a few museum professionals and one critic All of them or less agree on the irrelevance of critics Most are willing to admit that the final judgment of art history might be very different than current tastes would indicate Nonetheless these people or less uniformly agree that artwork that sells for a lot of money is in fact the best artwork in other words that the market decides what is the best art at any given time None of them would express it this way it's all about having an eye But underlying what they say in their interviews is a belief in price as indicator of uality This is clearly insane for a bunch of reasons One is that it devalues critical thought in favor of money Critics can and are often wrong but at least they are seriously engaged with asthetics It also assumes that markets are right These collectors suggest that artist X is great therefore his work is expensive But the willingness of collectors to purchase artist X is also why it's expensive Supply and demand is a pas de deux after all And demand can make big mistakes as we saw when all those institutional investors bought all those CDOs Second it excludes artists whose work is not or cannot be sold in galleries in art fairs and at auction Performance artists artists who specialize in public art lots of social practice art site specific art etc In short this book is interesting for what it unintentionally reveals than for its overt content

    Inside look into the contemporary art market Occupied with markets strategies investment etc and not the visceral enjoyment and ecstasy of feeling the art
