Joining ARK [UPDATED]

About

ARK (Art Replacing Knowledge) was founded as a global arts collective in 2013.  As the social balance became more and more volatile, the value of art shifted from the public to privatized interests.  Artists were no longer driven by their responsibility to the muse or society but rather by the will of their funding sponsors.  An artist without backing was marginalized to obscurity, and those with funding were obligated to follow the ‘company’ line.  The social value of arts was reduced to entertainment and its success measured by its monetary popularity. People turned away from the arts as a solution, regarding them instead as an escape, and the artists as escapists.  And so, the members of ARK started the movement to escape.  Not literally, but through artistic metaphor.
