Art is one of the major markets throughout Europe. With the global economic crisis and the various ways of resistance to problems such as racism, anti-immigration laws, feminism, etc, the production ofcontemporary art today is overwhelming. This is not new, plus getting profit from the current economical situation is possible if you have an artistic and conceptual radical nature. Thus, institutions, collections,artists and museums are rewarded.
