That is a lot of questions, I'm trying to give short answers, sorry.

 It is not really the question, your government seems to care that
artists shouldn't pay taxes, because they might be aware that an art piece has no price,
at the moment if one can speculate over some artistic work it's not art anymore,
it's business. If one makes a lot of money, that's good, it might even be a good artist,
but in fact it's the not the price of an artistic work that make it good, it's more subtil.

 Well, I hope you've understood that I'm not talking about the industrial music style
like Einstürzende Neubauten, or Psychic TV, but industrialized music, that follows
rules only driven by profit.

> Deadly industrial art ? does art kill ?

 Not really, but I imagine that if media only releases art defined by political, or monetarist rules,
it's not art anymore, art IS killed.

Excellent, I love it.
