The Newspaper Industry and Art Criticism

January 20, 2009 at 6:37 PM Leave a comment

András Szántó has a post on Artworld Salon that addresses the issue of the demise of the newspaper industry and the layoff of critics.  The most interesting comments are in the responses like this one from Jonathan T.D. Neil:

“I think it’s the very idea of ‘art writing’ itself, this kind of meandering, quasi-critical, quasi-creative, largely unopinionated and wholly unargumentative but self-consciously learned blather that is more of a threat to criticism and coverage than anything else related to the industry landscape. Blogs have picked up some of this, but the best ones are those that don’t go near this rather cursory world of self-satisfied discourse.”
