Martin Herbert introduces us in his essay collection Tell Them I Said No to 10 artists that have all for different reasons and in different forms decided to withdraw from the art world and its mechanisms. Amongst them are David Hammons, Agnes Martin, Lutz Bacher and Trisha Donelly. Herbert looks in detail at how their practices are shaped by strategies to counter established patterns and positions of power and dominance and instead foster the artists’ independence, each withdrawal comes with different implications.
