- “In the meantime, commissioned art has become as natural as in pre-modern, nobility-and-church times, whether it’s company foyers or flagship stores, living rooms and yachts by private collectors, stage sets, cafes, wine labels – there’s almost nothing artists do not (from https://www.zeit.de/2015/31/ Auftraggeber-kuenstler-auftragskunst-einflussmarkt, called Sept 2018).
