The second day of the Post-precarity Autumn Camp was marked by the discussion on the funding possibilities within the art sector, as well as the moral, ethical, and conceptual dilemmas that concern sourcing from both public and private finance pools. The day started with the workshop prepared by Marianna Takou from Casco Art Institute that introduced the perspective of the commons as applied in their practice of sourcing and (re)distributing funds for artistic practices. Topics touched upon during this workshop entailed the questions of traversing the binary of public and private funds, as well as problematizing the ongoing process of finding the right way to justly redistribute the funds to the collective. During the lunch break, Koen Bartijn from Platform BK gave a talk on the Fair Practice Code and the Richtlijn Kunstenaarshonorarium, which sparked a lively discussion on politics and the pragmatics of underpaid or unpaid labour of young artists that exceeded into the smoking breaks and informal time of the day. After that, Timo Demolin presented his research that was conducted for the article The Philantropy Trap on the private money flows in the art sector in the Netherlands, that opened up the problems of navigating and positioning of both artists and art institutions within the corporate art-washing practices. The day concluded with the communal film-programming workshop, facilitated by PLOKTA, that reflected on audiovisual representation of precarious labour, commonly sourced by all the participants of the workshop.
