Taxing Art: When Objects Travel

In recent years, the boundaries between art and design have become more and more blurred. It is not the object itself, but rather its economic functionality that determines where design stops and art begins - and this functionality is reassessed at every link in the chain of the object s dissemination. Taxing Art is a buoyantly ironic, clever case study and analysis of the effect of traditional, bureaucratic procedures on innovative work. This revealing illustrated essay puts the spotlight on the largely underestimated effect that tax laws have on where design ends and art begins.
