Joshua Schwebel - Subsidy


At the culmination of a year-long residency at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, representing the province of Québec, Canada (2015), Joshua Schwebel used his entire project budget to compensate the unpaid interns working in the Künstlerhaus’ administrative offices. Subsidy is both the name of the artistic project and the title of this book, which details and expands the stakes of the work. Articles, literary inquiries, and artistic contributions negotiate the political and artistic context and conditions of the work, and root the economic intervention in the complex terrain of contemporary neo-liberal creative culture.
