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.
@platypus the anecdotes about how all of the secondary group involvement (the guards, the shipping companies) seem completely incapable of handling the idea that the not-art is not a valuable asset to be protected are particularly fascinating
@InspectorCaracal one thing I loved in Romania was an exhibit created with duplicates of real things so they'd done all kinds of creepy stuff to accentuate the gothic including bloody handprints on one painting. It felt very video game, very transgressive, very different.
