What characterizes the value of art compared with the concept of value in the global market economy? What can be translated? Although Marianne Heier abandons traditional exhibition spaces in connection with her projects, “Art” is still always measured against other social constructs. Heier looks at the typical features of the economies of given fields and how they overlap and collide. With this approach, Heier turns the focus on distinctions between cultural and economic capital, which are further problematized inasmuch as her physical works or interventions often end up as gifts to institutions. The gift economy as a phenomenon and theoretical entity is therefore central to Heier’s art production. Hylland Eriksen, Ranjit Hoskote, and Solveig Øvstebø, and others, have contributed reflections on Heier’s practice.
