The format Art Following the Trend? Artists’ Voices. was developed during Alexandra Reill’s participation in the artists-in-residency program of the Istanbul Contemporary Art Museum and her stay at the Gümüşlük Academy in Turkey. First video interviews were taken there, followed by conversations with international artists focussing on their motivation to produce art, the targets of their art and their self-defintion of their roles and positions in contemporary societies, with a special focus on their financing models for the art production as well as their ways of life.

The interview series developed into a project of Artistic Research and led to two parallel modules taking place in 2006-2008 – a series of discussion panels and artists’ talks, in parts combined with screenings of former video interviews, staged in Vienna. Module 2 consisted of a series of interviews conducted offline or in form of email correspondence on an international level; followed by the transcription, editing and publishing of the findings on the video blog Art Following the Trend? Artists’ Voices on a regular basis.

Furthermore, the Artistic Research project led to the publication Art Following the Trend? Artists’ Voices. Artists’ Talks – an inter-positioning of excerpts of participating artists’ positions; and to the study Art Following the Trend? Artists’ Voices. evaluating the interviews and a survey undertaken on the theme on the basis of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis.
