The criticism of the conditions of the artist in the states is true enough

be imagined and performed.

indeed I would contend that "the net art space" is perhaps the *best* extant "zone of action" for the development of such a critique [or set of critiques]

The idea in art precedes and evades its commodification.

and I would contend that the internetwork as a publishing media assists in avoiding such a pitfall for you no longer need to "own a press" to get your ideas into the eyes and ears of a broad spectrum of "others"
