Report from BYOB Venezia


What is the basis (citation, reference, etc) for this statement in the above review?
"BYOB first
launched last year in Berlin by Dutch artists Rafaƫl Rozendaal and Anne de Vries to
combat the reliance upon institutions for the facilitation of new media exhibitions."
I am looking at the BYOB FAQ ( http://www.byobworldwide.com/faq ) and I don't see anything about combatting institutional reliance.

DISCUSSION

Domenico Quaranta on Jon Rafman show, copyright issues


These issues were worked out in depth 20 years ago in music, in lawsuits over copyright. Eventually artists learned to disguise the samples, but then the frisson of the quote was lost. But those wars were worth fighting because the music didn't just quote Beethoven and other warhorses of so-called high art--their aim was every kind of culture imaginable, existing side by side with the new art in the same pop frame of reference. It's not clear why "Brand New Paint Job" takes only the greatest hits of museum/gallery art for its subject--it seems to continue the unfortunate trend of new media artists being resentful gallery also-rans and wannabes. Many other things besides more famous art works could be mapped onto 3D armatures but then you lose the narrative of critique (of something that's already been critiqued to death--painting as a service or commodity).
