wow ! turner prize awarded yesterday and i only just heard the result.
while at university i joked about being part of the turner prize and the visiting fellow lecturer tested my resolve by asking me to name the winners. i was silent : his reaction was “you can;t be that serious about it then”
i love how the “is it art” question has been dusted off and given another outing. it would appear that if you can discredit it, then it must be art.
recently i’ve been musing the politicisation of ideas. are we witnessing the politicisation of the turner prize ?
