“We are gathered together here at a fair, this is the place where money talks. But surprisingly hardly anyone talks about money. The fair is the meeting place of people who make photographs and people who sell photographs and people who buy photographs and all the other people who are involved in the trade in one way or the other although they do neither make nor sell nor buy photographs. We are all in the same boat, they say.”

“Art professionals today are notoriously busy. They are ceaselessly writing, networking, traveling, tweeting, attending openings, managing their “brand,” and responding to emails. This level of hyperactivity is perhaps required today in order to earn even a modest living in the art world. But how does it affect the work that’s produced, and the discourse about this work? Has the obligation to produce something eclipsed the slow, patient work of producing something good? Does the endless stream of art commentary, on the internet and in print, sacrifice depth of analysis for sheer quantity?”
