What is the nature of the collector-artist relationship? What method do they use to find each other? Is their direct communication possible and is such communication really an a priori condition for dumping the art market? Is it true that collectors’ demand for specific works of art devalues the creative language? Is the collaboration of collectors and artists beneficial to the advancement of culture? And other issues.

“A modern artist is a realism artist. That is one who lives in reality”.
On June 15, collector Vladimir Spielvogel, artist Oleg Tistol, and director of M17 Natalia Shpytkovska talked about engagement with reality, the absence of dynamism in Ukrainian cultural discourse, commercial and “great” art, and a collector’s and an artist’s feeling of duty to each other and themselves.
“I hope that the Contemporary Art Museum of Ukraine will open someday in Ukraine. It is impossible to create it unless it is based on works from private collections. And I sincerely hope that one day I will be able to give my collection to such a museum”.
