Some of these artists are new to me, and they remind me of a show called
Bonk Business, out of Finland, coming to London next year, which is a sort
of history and trade show for a non existant company. In my original post I
actually had in mind something more like the artist groups and artist run
spaces such as Bank or Milch in London, or the new media collectives which
include both artists and other practitioners such as Tomato whose work may
take different forms for different contexts, but actually running as a
business the whole time, not just for an installation. What I think the
bureau brings to this way of working is a much more overt concern with the
contextualisation of art practice and in particular its global economic
context. Much more interesting.
