Texte Zur Kunst 32/127 (Sept. 2022) Resortization
With the help of the neologism “resortization,” this September issue of Texte zur Kunst discusses the structural transformation currently underway in the domain of art, which compels it to resemble a resort-like environment. In particular, this term encapsulates the tendency of various blue-chip galleries to follow their well-to-do clientele into the reclusion of exclusive luxury enclaves such as Aspen, Saint-Tropez or Monte-Carlo. The issue also engages with the increasing relevance of digital media, which not only plays a growing part in informing processes of recognition but fundamentally influences the conditions under which artistic work is made and experienced.
