Aaron Moulton is a seasoned art world veteran who worked as a curator for the Gagosian gallery, an editor for Flash Art International and founded Feinkost gallery in Berlin, only to start engaging in anthropological work and start researching the impact SCCA (Soros Centres for Contemporary Art) network’s impact on Eastern European art scene. This research formed the core of his exhibition „The Influencing Machine“ which was on show in Ujazdowski castle in Warsaw. We discussed the peculiarities of the Eastern European art scene, the relationship between art, politics and money during the „transition“, the conflicts between liberalism and freedom, the true value of art and how Bruce Lee of Mostar epitomises everything strange and wrong with the transition efforts.
