ART IS UNUSEFUL NOW

I was an artist, in my past, I abandoned everything. I am Italian and Italy is the cradle of art but we modern artists have no value and are not considered. Art is dead, it is not even sold in thrift stores. Nobody wants art and books. It is a company that has lost its sense of beauty. I also created jewels, bags, all sewn only with needle and thread, all ecological to the maximum, but nobody wants objects and things not signed by famous people. I hate this destructive society, I hate living in this place where art is deemed useless. Art is completely useless. (!?) There is a paradox in this statement that crosses different aspects of living. From the point of view of economic logic, art has no value (… and be careful not to confuse the accidental usefulness of the work of art), and it is for this reason that the evaluation of the work of art is almost entrusted to discretion. of the operators of the sector, which in any case has no practical basis except in the research paths that distinguish it. This is the difficulty of the artist when he tries to quantify the value of his own art, confused between the value of his own creative force and the product of this work, finally also unwittingly resorting to recognizing the canons of the art system. For these reasons, the artist’s image is often distorted and associated with bizarre behavior and in any case of economic unreliability. The artist is often torn between the need to express all his expressive / artistic potential and that of obtaining a sufficient livelihood income anyway. The problem is that the two are complementary and it follows that chasing the first solution leads to distancing from the other. However, although art does not correspond to an economic value, it still has an exchange value and the person is often the bearer and component of it. Dressing in fashion is an example of enjoying art. Before stating that art is useless, the person will have to stop and explain why he wears colorful clothes instead of being satisfied with the simple usefulness of clothing. Art does not bring practical improvements. However, it influences the psychophysical state of the person and therefore indirectly becomes the bearer of well-being. This is partly associated with the value of art. The contradiction arises from the fact that art is the expression of the gratuitousness of feelings, while its commodification is a mask placed at a later time that can hide its origin.

NO GLOBALIZATION

Honestly when I first saw African tribes wearing Nike shirts and Japanese with punk crests I was very disappointed. Each people has very specific characteristics made up of different traditions and lifestyles. And this because of globalization no longer exists. If I go to different countries I find the same things, the same way of dressing, the same food and few things are different now. I don’t like this at all. I believe that peoples have been manipulated to be all transformed into consumers, destroyers and narcissists. This manipulation has made everyone so alike that they are all slaves to a global system that is destroying the planet and humans themselves. It is not nice to see entire historic neighborhoods destroyed in many states and to see that people all dress the same, no longer having their own tradition and culture. Wherever I go I find the same clothes, the same habits, and they are conforming us according to a global system of rules that reduce life only to a continuous purchase. But few people realize this. Few people are aware of this destruction of cultural traditions. The world now seems made up only of Nike, Mac Donalds, Coca Cola, and everyone accepts this without any protest. Everyone wants the same things and nobody wants to go back. Young people have gotten lost following the brands that manipulate them through influencers for a life that seems satisfying but then becomes depressed and destructive. Look how many young people no longer have a purpose in life, they don’t want money and success. They are not even looking for love anymore but only for money. And they fight each other, they are all rivals, on youtube and on Twitch, they fight as if they were in a ring. They don’t want the fam and that’s it.

THE SYSTEM

How does the system work? The system works thanks to you, in such a refined way that you feed it 24 hours a day and are totally unaware of it. You are part of it through two apparently different paths. The first is the way of submission and obedience. You are a slave identified with the system whose regime you share, nurture and defend. You do not object because you do not even suspect that you are completely asleep. The second is the way of rebellion and the sense of injustice. You are a slave who does not share the regime, but you feed it with your detachment; you are convinced that you are not part of it, in reality you identify with anger, frustration, anxiety and pain, things that the system is greedy for. The more pissed you off, the more you expand it, the more it expands, the more pissed you off. Even if in everyday life they seem two different roads, they are the same road. Above all, what your mind intends to do has already been predicted and calculated by the system, indeed you have it in your brain because the system has caused you to behave in a certain way, so every time you think you are fighting something external to you, you are only reinforcing the illusion. No one has ever won a social war, the system has only allowed it to move to a later stage. I told you, then you see. The only way out is to disidentify
