I support art price regulation. No artwork of mine should cost more then it costed produce. Labor costs are depend on national avarages (In Finland ~2800€/month). The resale price must be the same as the original. In response to Art + Taxes = The Dirty Truth by The Art Assignment and other similar raports.

We send an application for the Sculpture Expanded call organized by The Association of Finnish Sculptors with the Neighborizome crew. The proposal has a bodybuilding vibe to it.
The Finnish Performance Art Bank has announced a call for new artwork entries to their sales/promotion/archive site. They’ve joined forces with the Artsi museum: Artist who join the bank (or update their old entries) can also apply as performers for the Performance Days -event (7.6.) held in Artsi. The selected artist will receive a 600€ fee (the jury consists of museum staff and Muu ry members). I think it’s great that there is an open call for a exhibition opening performance (the exhibition will show works by Erkki Pirtola) but I think using the call to lure artists to join the bank is tacky.
