Anish Kapoor in Berlin: ‘in short, Britain’s fucked’
Sad but true statement comparing Britain to Berlin on the arts - via The Guardian:
The British-based artist says the exhibition, entitled Kapoor in Berlin, is the best show he has yet put on, which may have much to do with the fact that he feels Germany demonstrates a huge degree of respect for the arts – in stark contrast to Britain.
“Germans have a rather healthy respect for the arts and artists,” he said, in an exclusive interview with the Guardian, adding that that attitude could “not be more different” from the British perspective.
“In Germany, it seems that the intellectual and aesthetic life are to be celebrated and are seen as part of a real and good education, whereas in Britain, traditionally – certainly since the Enlightenment – we’ve been afraid of anything intellectual, aesthetic, visual.”
These perspectives were reflected in the two countries’ drastically differing policies on financial support of the arts, he said.
“In the UK, while the arts are the second biggest sector after banking, they probably form less than one tenth of 1% of government spending. It’s completely scuzzy. The UK has two things, the arts and education, and both of them it pushes into the corner. It’s the hugest, hugest mistake. Why do British ministers meet anyone from the arts other than to cut them? Compared to Germany, Britain has got quite a long way to go there, frankly
“In short, Britain’s fucked.”
I’m annoyed that none of the exhibition buildings survive, the Tate Tower should’ve been kept at least.
Well I suppose the Palace of Engineering was moved to Prestwick Airport where it still stands today.
Got my Booker T. and the MG’s cd playing in the car, I’m no boy racer.

good question, i don’t think there is one, my brief was really vague and basically said i wanted to produce a portfolio of images that show some of the things i’ve learned through my time at college, on looking back of it, i’ve done a seriously shit job, its just a collection of weird documentary-esque surrealist images, i dunno, i really don’t know what i’ve done.
i think i said i wanted to try and consider the use of colour as well, not sure how well i’ve done, a lot of the images are really flat and contrastless.
look forward to getting my results haha
I don’t really know what i was trying to achieve with my graded unit this year, but that’s it, i don’t expect to do well, my head was all over the place and some of the stuff is incredibly boring.
