Exploitation is at the core of the arts industry

"We have reached Year Zero, a point where cultural policy and infrastructure no longer serves the interests of the arts, the artists or society.


(...)


Artists need to intervene in non-arts environments. We need to see our artistic practice as a dramaturgical tool for civil society. Let’s be bold. We need to develop not only an artistic dramaturgy and a cultural dramaturgy but a progressive, social dramaturgy. We need to operate cross-sectorally and think transversally. We can no longer enjoy the luxury of being the antagonist. We need to drive the narrative, be a protagonist."
