Maybe I was too terse. I'm a huge supporter of SRL and have seen them twice. Explicitly:
- "never sell out," decommodification, etc. is temporary; BM will never sell out, right?
- SRL's contribution to the event is huge both in aesthetics and individuals who cross-fertilized creative SF projects. That would include the Suicide Club and Cacophony
- we can't bring back art danger to the playa because current participants are irresponsible and altered, as well as the event needing liability insurance
- I think it's great when artists make money, how exactly does that work with the current art contract?
- BMORG is following the same strategy of BM art in galleries and museums
I heard that the founder of The Verve commented something like it's not a question of if you sell out it's a question of when.Said as they lost their publishing rights for a song to the Rolling Stones, sold the song to Nike and that song received a Grammy nomination for Jagger/Richards/Ashcroft.
(I've seen performances, taken workshops and friends performed at Project Artaud and I've enjoyed shows at Southern Exposure)
