101 Excuses. How the Art Legitimises Itself is a quasi exhaustive collection of grounds for legitimising works artists utilise in the contemporary art scene.

First Sentence
'It is important to begin by stating the premises:  Every art work deserves to be realised and the only objective limits that can be put on an art work's multiplication are the ones that climate change or active legislation defines'.
