Open Letter to Labor Servicing the Culture Industry
Dis    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I've worked as an art handler in New York, both as a freelancer and on the payroll with benefits. The two modes of handling art both share the constant threat of losing one's job if any mistakes are made or if any hesitation to accommodate what is requested—or more often expected—is revealed. Freelancing is less and more stressful. Freelancing allows for a lifestyle where literally 10–14 hour days (like many others, I've done 16ers, some overnighters) can be packed into a week during an exhibition change, with weeks off to "focus on one's own work."

Should Visual Artists Get Royalties?
Stranger    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the United States, visual artists, unlike musicians, usually only make money once in the sale of an artwork. After a work is sold the first time, other people make money on it—not the artist. But California is the only state with a law that gives visual artists royalty fees. California's law says artists are entitled to 5 percent of the sale price when their works are resold. More

Science Publishing: The Trouble with Retractions
Nature    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This week, some 27,000 freshly published research articles will pour into the Web of Science, Thomson Reuters' vast online database of scientific publications. Almost all of these papers will stay there forever, a fixed contribution to the research literature. But two hundred or so will eventually be flagged with a note of alteration such as a correction. And a handful—maybe five or six—will one day receive science's ultimate postpublication punishment: retraction, the official declaration that a paper is so flawed that it must be withdrawn from the literature.
