To accompany the exhibition THE IRREGULARS. Economies of Deviation at nGbK from April 20–June 2, 2013, a Glossary of Inflationary Terms (from the dilettante to the virtuoso) is being published, with contributions by Mercedes Bunz, Alice Creischer, Karin Harrasser/Aino Korvensyrjä, Christoph Menke, Wolfgang Müller, Nicole Karafyllis, Judith Siegmund, Christine Sun Kim, Kai van Eikels, Jan Verwoert, Uwe Wirth and others. The Glossar inflationärer Begriffe deals with value judgments about art and work which have found themselves spreading in an inflationary manner. Rather than propose an exodus, the contributions attempt to keep the terms in the discourse by means of deviating levels of meaning – dilettante, emotional, ingenious, creative, critical, performative, professional and virtuoso. The glossary thus forms a terminological index of the debate about artistic work and gainful employment, which is being conducted with almost identical adjectives used in an inflationary manner.
