Artist Michael Asher, a pioneer of the Institutional Critique mode, defines art as this:
Art is work done by artists.
In contemporary time, when an art product cannot necessarily be defined by gallery space, temporality, means, or end, Asher’s definition is accommodating. I wonder whether you think the corollary is true of writing: Writing is work done by writers.
What is some writing you admire by someone not considered or self-identifying as a writer?
