Urban camping as art, and Spotify as the end of music by The Disclaimer published on 2013/10/16 19:40:57 +0000 Back in May, a group called ArtPlace America awarded the Greater Milwaukee Committee, ART Milwaukee, and Beintween a hefty $350,000 grant. Now, it appears that some of that money will be used to stage a weekend-long “urban camping” event on Wisconsin Ave. Ryan, Evan, and Matt talk about this puzzling project, and whether or not camping—and, by extension, “placemaking”—can be considered art. Next, Evan discusses a recent essay from David Byrne in which he rails against ubiquitous music streaming service Spotify. Are artists’ livelihoods in danger because of Spotify? Who’s really making money off this new technology? And seriously, what’s up with camping on Wisconsin Ave.?
