Interesting article by my friend Harald Falckenberg in FT; we curated a series of Paul Thek shows together at the Reina Sofia in Madrid, Falckenberg's museum in Hamburg and the ZKM Museum in Karlsruhe, along with a publication by MIT Press, Paul Thek, Artist’s Artist. Harald's piece is entitled: "The art world we deserve?" But why should we ever be subjected to anything else? And btw, I sold him the glorious Vito Acconci image that leads off article 10 years ago. 

I basically disagree with the one sentiment below, as there are a plethora of rampant short-term buyers/sellers today as never before in history.  “In the meantime, most of the speculators have disappeared, and with them an art market that relied excessively on the hype of the young and the new.”
