The mechanisms, rhetoric and strategies of today's art world are probably closer to popular conceptions of the film industry than to the romantic image of the solitary studio-bound artist--so byzantine are the relations between artists, collectors and critics that sit just behind the artwork itself, propping it up, so to speak. The artists in The Making of Art show and trace these structures, offering some transparency as to how this world--so foreign and remote to many of us--really operates. Artists contributing to this elucidation are Pawel Althamer, Azorro, Tami Ben-Tor, Joseph Beuys, Merlin Carpenter, Clegg & Guttmann, Phil Collins, Tracey Emin, Fischli & Weiss, Andrea Fraser, Ryan Gander, Thomas Hirschhorn, Jorg Immendorff, Komar & Melamid, Sean Landers, Louise Lawler, Manuel Ocampo, Martin Parr, Sigmar Polke, Cheri Samba, Nedko Solakov, Wolfgang Tillmans and John more
