The Swiss Issue
is a field study on art and the art market, made in what could be the last  days of neo-liberalism, during the 3 month in which the UBS bank lost 16 billion dollars in the divident crisis.

The editors have attempted to understand how the machine behind art works, and have  looked critically at the role of the market. '…We have quickly come to understand that the international art market is effective for only approximately 3 to 5 per cent of artists. But how does who decide who will make it to the  top?...and how will the other artists survive?'

'…We asked writers for critical reflections on the art world and its existing model, and interviewed artists, designers, curators and collectors in Switzerland about art and the  market. One question we posed to everyone: do you think the current hierarchical model works? And this usually led to a second question: is it possible to conceive another model?'

Text contributions by: Karen Wright / Piroschka Dossi / Anders Petterson / Barbara Basting / Ilona Genoni / Dora Imhof / Thibaut de Ruyter / Peter Stoffel / Jo Maier / and So:en.
