Here is a recent take on a problem that was first identified in the early 70s, the steady increase in the stockpile of art objects and what to do with them.
We are weighed down by works of art! "Their present-day number, which is practically infinite, already greatly exceeds our capacity for assimilation. Regardless, new ones are created everyday. How can we avoid contributing to this proliferation, without relinquishing the possibility of producing effects on the real? How can we progress without increasing?" Jean-Baptiste Farkas 1 685 740 works of art are produced per day in the world. 19.51 works of art are produced per second in the world.
