I am a Performance Artist. In my practice in the last 29 years, I have been confronted with numerous situations of appropriation, meddling, and manipulation of creative thinking by capitalist interests with the sole purpose of advancing their predatorial interests. I have coined that Artwash. Awareness of Artwash potentialises resistance to the advance of capital over people’s lives. I believe creativity is an effective revolutionary human tool only when it comes unhindered, without any mediation by capitalist interests. “From people, for people, by people”
