Abstract

La dérégulation des modes d'existence des oeuvres de l'art contemporain, et les critères contrastés de leur définition, interviennent à une période historique de profonde mutation des formes symboliques. Cette dérégulation, influencée par les modèles néolibéraux de l’économie financière, intervient directement sur la création artistique. L'économie de l'oeuvre d'art ne saurait se calquer sur les notions de temporalité et d'obsolescence en vigueur dans l'économie des biens et des services. Une perte du sens des limites, et la transgression des frontières, se traduisent notamment par l'emballement du marché de l'art contemporain. Apollon est à Wall Street, pour le pire. The deregulation of the representation modes of the works of contemporary art, and the contrasting criteria of their definition, take place at a historical period characterized by a profound transformation of symbolic forms. This deregulation, influenced by neo-liberal financial economics, directly impacts the artistic creation. The economy of the artwork cannot be based on the notions of temporality and obsolescence, in force in the economy of goods and services. A loss of a sense of limits and the transgression of borders notably cause the contemporary art market to race out of control. Apollo is at Wall Street, for the worse.
