For this book, Peim van der Sloot has developed 99 new propositions to re-define the value of the work and the position of the artist in this old fashioned system.
He encourages artists and arts organizations to attempt to create alternative micro-economies. These propositions are about art not as an input for productivity, or luxury made possible by economic growth, but rather as a new way to set the terms on which exchange in the economy takes place.The light-hearted and humorous propositions are up for different interpretations or combinations, but always carry a serious undertone, that stake out a new, more useful position for art in society.
