Is any money free from exerting an influence on the artist or art it enables? Is all money equally ‘good’ or ‘bad’, regardless of the source?

In this Live Art Development Agency Study Room Guide, Jane Trowell from Platform has selected some key texts that are useful in helping to position yourself ethically with regard to financing or supporting artistic practice through business or corporate sponsorship.

There are lots of guides for artists on how to earn a living from art or how to raise funds to support making it, but few which help us ask what the ethical implications are of the routes we choose.
