The Salvage Art Institute sounds really fascinating. Not only do they take “irredeemably” damaged art, they pledge NOT to let that art regain “value.” https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-artwork-damaged-repair
trying to force value onto art is almost always something which benefits galleries, not artists, so I’m very pro that stance.
If “value” led to artists getting paid better, it would fall into my “pay people for their work” ethos but it’s always about enriching the rich.
