“Of course we should be paying artists for the work they make, it is ridiculous to suggest otherwise. This is a situation which has become part of a much wider culture in which the very core, the artwork and its producer – the artist – is not supported.
“With diminishing funds particularly in the public sphere and the creation of new business models it is essential we remember that the art work is at the core of everything we do. Artes Mundi fully supports the Paying Artists campaign.”
