Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel because he was commissioned by the Pope. Shakespeare was supported by wealthy patrons. The archetype of the starving artist emerged, the visionary straying from the crowd, sacrificing economic well-being in order to carve out something new and special. The Muses were no longer part of an antiquated religious cosmology but forces for creativity. Libraries, theaters, museums, and concert halls became the new cathedrals, places where you went to court the old emotions of catharsis, transcendence, redemption, and joy.
The institutionalization of art resulted in new standards and types of credentials M. The twentieth-century proliferation of American music, writing, film, and visual art was nurtured both by the state—American culture became a key export during the Cold War—and by new industries that had arisen to manufacture, distribute, and sell such wares. The Internet was supposed to free the artist, and to democratize and de-professionalize the practice of art.
In some measure, it did—while also demonetizing art itself. Perhaps our shift in values can be traced to the emergence of file-sharing networks, like Napster or LimeWire, when a generation of consumers glimpsed the convenience and ease of digital culture. I remember feeling faint the first time I used LimeWire, and convincing myself that this was the proper state of things: music was meant to be free and accessible.
Who needed a CD collection if you had a decent Internet connection and an up-to-date computer? The sheer volume of stuff on the Internet scrambled our sense of how art and artistic labor should be valued. It became much harder to feel scorn toward the company that was selling us our Internet connection or headphones or portable listening devices, even though they had almost completely infiltrated our lives.
It was a platform, a device, a raft of free services. Deresiewicz writes about how the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which advocated for both privacy rights and the free flow of information, was partially founded by people in the tech industry.
What you did on the Internet mattered less than the fact that you were there all the time. Publishers, movie studios, and record labels used to make investments in artists, some of whom paid big, many of whom did not. Often, the former would pay for the latter. But that level of risk has shifted back onto the artists. The big illusory promise of the digital age, it becomes clear in retrospect, was that removing a layer of business meant doing away with the exploitative parts of capitalism.
Instead, it created the conditions by which companies like Amazon could dominate the realm of distribution. The infinite bookshelf sounds nice until you try to actually choose something. Artists were still in a market, only a much more competitive and relentless one.
Anderson thought that the blockbuster syndrome effectively arose from a scarcity of shelf space, a problem we had now solved. In fact, our array of choices proved paralyzing, and attention consolidated around those at the very top. Today, seventy-seven per cent of music-industry revenue goes to the top one per cent of content producers.
It has been easier for some fields to adapt to this consolidation than others. For some visual artists, the patrons of yesterday have been replaced by partnerships with savvy brands or creative agencies. Private foundations, like Ford, continue to support artists who share their vision of social justice, quietly shaping the artistic discourse in the process.
But the possibility of infinite options and shrinking attention spans means that some industries have become more risk-averse. In film, the dominance of superhero movies, which appeal to audiences across geographic and linguistic barriers, has made studios less inclined to green-light romantic comedies. Streaming outlets have stepped in here. There have been many well-meaning attempts to create new infrastructures. In , three creative types launched Kickstarter, a Web site that made it easier for people to crowdfund their artistic projects.
But high-profile success stories, such as the musician Amanda Palmer, who raised more than a million dollars on Kickstarter in , rarely offer replicable models for building and sustaining a career. Meeting a funding goal is not the same as securing a living.
Most Kickstarter campaigns fail. According to a analysis, only two per cent of creators on Patreon bring in more than the federal minimum wage. Deresiewicz has spent his career as a sort of Henry Adams figure, passionately invested in learning rather than in formal education, character rather than persona. Both offer deep engagement with great art as a path toward self-enlightenment. Yet Deresiewicz has witnessed the devaluation of such cultural communion, as well as the labor associated with it.
After pursuing a traditional academic career and teaching English at Yale for a decade, he became a freelancer in , right around the time that journalism and publishing began to feel the true effects of the Internet. The present seems to confound him. He insists that few people who make music embrace materialism, which seems to overlook the aspirational tensions of a lot of contemporary Black music.
Nor does he entertain the possibility that the Great American Novelist is actually programming a video game or writing a television show. Television, he notes grudgingly, is one of the few growth industries for young writers. A few years ago, I found myself at a party in an empty lot in a condo-less part of Brooklyn.
