TA Collective finally published their first Ein Magazin, titled I have nothing to say. Artists were dealing with the problem of creativity and creative barriers, which can be interpret and discussed in many ways. I for once claim that the greatest creative barrier is an ultimate inspiration. The issue of creativity and originality is obviously far more sociologically and philosophically complex one. The ability of dealing with the issue of creativity in an innovative way is what raises the art above all and gives it it’s importance.
That’s why I find the approach of Ein magazine’s first issue I have nothing to say so interesting and demanding at the same time.
EIN magazine is a digital photography magazine that provides an exhibition space for conceptual and experimental photography. It presents critical projects made without any boundaries in the cre- ative process. Not only is it to promote creative talent in the international arena but also to serve as an inspirational and stimulating material for you the reader and the participants of EIN Labs run by TA Collective.
“ I have nothing to say and I am saying it and that is poetry as I need it.” — John Cage, Lecture on Nothing (1949)

Value of money/value of art
I claimed once that the biggest problem of monetary economy is money itself. It’s simple. Money has a value that is abstract and unimaginable. To emphasize this I will porously use an over exaggerated cases in the great art world!
If we take a look on the list of the most expensive photographs ever sold, the amounts are still next to nothing, compared with the most expensive Paul Cézanne’s The card players, which was sold for 250 + billion dollars.
