Join us live on Twitter for a topical discussion exploring sub-dom dynamics in the art world and how they are being subverted both on and offline.

From the powerplay of patrons to hallowed halls of museums, artists are fetishised and commodified. The fast, accessible world of digital art can whip this into a frenzy, but also invites artistic communities to bite back. Our expert panel discusses sub-dom dynamics in the art world and how they are being subverted both on and offline.
