The Top %1 Percent Jobs Breakdown ~ Image Source: The New York Times

The New York Times created an infographic to show what jobs of the top %1 percent. I pulled the info from Hyperallergic, which is one of my favorite online art and culture journals. Of course, info and data are, well, exactly that. Hopefully, it leads you to do a bit of research and investigation. It made me think, I’m not included in this schematic because I do freelance and work completely outside of the structure (i.e., blogging, personal enrichment). Now, imagine, hundreds like me that NEED the analysts, managerial, or office drone occupations to help keep us afloat?

If you’re interested, here’s a comparator article that delves into an artist’s wage.

In my Power 100 post, I noted Marina Abramovic as an artist featured on the list. She’s, certainly, one of my favorite artist. Her pieces entail notions of self with Other, limitations of the body, and physical endurance.

Due to the write-up I’m currently working on for the La Postra Nostra collective, I wanted to keep the posts on this particular genre of art (primarily for selfish reasons – I need to focus and gain inspiration for my own writing).

New York Times writer, Holland Cotter, wrote an article titled, Performance Art Preserved, in the Flesh about her most well-known pieces. Enjoy!

Back to work!!!
