A ceux qui pretendent aider la culture par des subventions, oubliant que certains artistes ont de la memoire, tiens donc! Wednesday, Jul 27 2011 

L argent citoyen sans conditions serrai  la liberation de la creativite de tous. Mais tant que la culture est vue comme support flatteur d un systeme  capitaliste “modere” ou l artiste doit etre “performant” et bien adapte a plaire au gout tres sur des speculateurs ou a une classe moyenne qui “consomme” de l art pour parfaire son image , l appartchik complaisant a bien plus de chance de survie, meme tres  n importe quoi, que celui qui a une veritable qualitee artistique , mais ne joue pas le jeu. La complaisance peut meme etre un peu d esprit critique, mais pas trop, just assez pour faire semblant de changer quelque chose, sans rien deranger au systemes des subventions entre bons amis qui se connaissent et s apprecient. Sans parler des grands besoins financiers de la bureaucratie qui pretend administrer l art et sait se creer de nouvelles importances en laissant des miettes aux artistes, faisant d eux des subalternes sociaux de son bon vouloir.

La creativite est naturelle en tout humain et la culture est plus qu un instrument de faire valoir d arrivites au pouvoir.

The flow of subventions Friday, Nov 26 2010 

In these days of European boom and bust hysteria & tristesse , few observations on the side:

If you ask yourself why those who preach water&bread increase their own bureaucracy administering the transfer of our money, remember…its for their best.

If you wonder why a product gets exported and reimported (to repeat!) till the billions are flowing, don’t…subventions have their own  logic .

Ever looked at the agriculture subventions, who finance the replanting of landscapes,  who have been destroyed by the subvention profit of oversized industry farming, only to name one of the many destroy/preserve game absurdity’s.

If you wonder why  “coaching” courses for unemployed get absurd amounts of subvention for even more absurd worthless concepts, one should avoid even mentioning in his CV, if one wants to be taken seriously!…they are “feed the go betweens” lucrative job creations and statistic “improving”.

If you wonder why some forgotten locations (where the jobs got delocalised before!) probably  get “improved” by “art”…from external imported mostly lousy artists. Remember art subvention nepotism exist. locals are only a “to entertain if they want or not ” aspect in that calculation.

New “improved” estates who cant be afforded by the old inhabitants,”improved” new roads and infrastructures leading to hypothetical “improved” futures,” improved” this and “improved” that.

If you expect enterprises to be high tax payers…find out that they know how to avoid it and even get many help to do so, and understand it is  the poor who pay the most.

How much “daily madness” more does it take till citizen get angry?
