I’ve read The Function of the Studio by Daniel Buren and Thomas Repensek this morning. The text opens with a quote that’s also in the book, The Studio Reader: on the space of artists, and firstly describes the archetypes of studios. The text then discusses the authenticity of the artworks and its places. Buren wrote about his dismay of the observed differences of the artworks exhibited and the artworks in the artists’ studios, and questions the reality/truth behind the works. He’s concerned that the meaning of the work is lost through the transfer of places (perhaps alluding to the compliance of expectations to a different place).
