In Art We Trust 

Corporate ladder: Gabriel Lester

“Warhol’s cynical realism in which economic or exchange value is the true source of arts’ potency. Unlike Peperkam, Warhol never spoke about quality. By seeking to maintain arts’ status as a ‘super commodity’ beyond use value whose mysterious value accumulates over time Peperkamp weakens the project as both experiment and as art.”
