Businesspeople talk about art like artists talk about money: gratuitously, without compensation. Hired to talk about money, an entrepreneur will speak in terms of art. Put an artist on a panel and you will often get disquisitions on exchange, capital, and commerce. Both constituencies are compelled by what lies outside their professional responsibility, and the response to this compulsion vibrates between veneration and contempt.

In the process of conceiving the current issue of On Curating, the debate between Claire Bishop and Grant Kester, which in 2006 occupied the pages of Artforum with a vehement discussion about the impact and merit of relational art, or what is most commonly referred to as socially engaged art, re-emerged as an unfinished discussion, especially in the context of the publication of each of their books in 2011 further developing their positions.
