Beer Money Commission #2
1. It will
be consistent with their previous practice in terms of artistic quality
The artist is free to sub-contract parts of the production of this work providing that this is consistent with the nature of their practice.
The total budget for the commission is £31.98 this means that the time allocated to complete the commission is 4139 seconds (approximately 69 minutes)
There are no concrete guidelines as to whether materials and research should be covered by the commissioning body or by the artist. The commission will follow one of two possible models based on discussion with the artist.
a) All inclusive; materials costs and research time are to be factored into the commission. In which case the artwork will belong to MILL-WORKERS. In this case a budget is proposed as follows.
28.8% or 1192secs or £9.21(ii)
A leeway of 3% would be expected in these figures.
b) Purely production; the allocated time is to be spent SOLELY on the production of the work (this would include a reasonable amount of ‘thinking time’ as would be expected as part of the production process) all research, materials and auditing would be external to this process and would be covered by the artist as part of their practice. In which case the artwork will remain the property of the artist (subject to certain contractual conditions)(iv)
on £10K a year, in line with a-n guidelines Feb 05 with 3% inflation
added. The lower recommended figure, as opposed to the higher figure
of £15K, is used as MILL-WORKERS is a small, low income organisation
