I wonder how the accusation of his works being exploitative of his performers could ever stand. His 'controversial' works are aimed to reveal the difficulties of capitalism. The very act of paying his performers little amount of wage to do dangerous and humiliating tasks is what I think the highlight of his work. People criticise him yet acquiesce in the unfair reality of the world. It is interesting how taking an issue that is actually common around the world, put it in a gallery, and suddenly it causes an outrage.
