It it right for artists to demand their work is destroyed after death ?



Fascinating discussion : Would you, artists, exercise your moral right or the "dead hand control" over your unfinished works?

For :

"Part of what we value in a great artist is not just raw ability but the ability to curate, and it’s frequently the case that artists build great reputations by being selective about what they show to the world"

Against :

“There is something special about these kinds of assets — they’re not just like a mansion or a fancy watch, but they’re socially valuable, and that has to play into the calculus,” Subotnik said. “I definitely argue against full-throttle enforcement of artistic control after death.”
