the artist and the museum

Johannes Cladders states (in Hans Ulrich Obrist, A Brief History of Curating, p.57) “that it is the artist who creates a work, but a society that turns it into a work of art […]. In most cases, museums have failed to see the consequences of this notion. I have always considered myself to be a ‘co-producer of art […,] in the sense of participating as a museum – as a mediating institution – in the process that transforms a work into a work of art.”
