Steward Home
On art, activism and art strike

Gustav Metzger (1926—1917) called for the elimination of the contemporary art scene in its heavily commercialised form. In his essay Years without Art he called on artists worldwide to renounce any form of artistic production between the years 1977 and 1980 to encourage the collapse of the art market. On February 28th 2018 West organised and recorded the 1-day symposium about Gustav Metzger: The Conscience of the Art World. Artist, filmmaker, writer, pamphleteer, art historian, and activist Stewart Home was invited for a personal talk on art strikes.
