In most cases, we already have many of the tools that can potentially be used to make a less hierarchical art world where artists have more stake in their work and its subsequent journey. There's nothing about ensuring artists get a fair portion of every subsequent sale of their work, for example, that can't be done with the old-fashioned tools of provenance, contracts, and human trust. In fact, this has occasionally been demanded or attempted to be secured legally by artists who were increasingly aware of the function art was serving as a financial investment in the post-war period. The sticking point is more often social, these kinds of ideas are difficult to put into practice because they challenge the hierarchical and extractive nature of the art world that those at the top of institutions, cultural, legal and financial, scaled or were born at the top of.
