Re: [BKARTS] art

Once again refer to Drucker's comments: 

"Because the field of artists' books suffers from being under theorised,
under historicised, under studied, and under discussed, it isn't taken
very seriously..." 

The reaction to some robust criticism of an artists' work on this list
highlights to me why she made this comment... if an artist puts their
work out in the artworld they have to be equally prepared to take on
board some criticism and some praise surely?
