everyone is an artist

 

Party Time / Everyone is an Artist 1999

 


“When you think about it, the traditional profile of the artist fits all the requirements of the ideal New Economy knowledge worker. Increas­ingly, we live in a value-adding economy whose managers want employees to behave, dress, and think like artists; to eschew job security and ben­efits like artists; to keep artists’ unsocial hours; and to accept a cash discount (creative gratificatlon as part compensation) for their labor. Look around. The industrialization of Bohemia is well under way.”
