How do artists work with people? How do artists work with many people? What do the people who work with these artists think about the work? Does the fact that they are artists matter to these people? What makes being an artist different from other (social) professions? Is the difference acknowledged? Is the difference fundamental? Does it have to be different? In the effort of locating different forms of artistic practice and planetary responsibilities, this essay addresses these questions through artists’ contexts and works, be it artworks, collective projects, collaborative efforts, living and working choices or writings.
