For a long time, describing art as labour was suppose to be offensive to artists who needed making art as they needed to breathe (therefore they would do it anyway), it was thought to take away the aura of art as a calling while making it so convenient for others to exploit artists’ work and romanticize their misery. I sure hope we’re over that and I sure hope we can think of a better strategy – yes, I am using a military term and I intend to continue to.
