Why would anyone think that this is art? What is it with the Guardian that they will invariably support questionable art?
Is culture now only for public school pupils? Arts faculties all gone and vanished from state schools, no more ordinary people learning visual arts, drama or music, just securing it for public school products with their blinkered and privileged view of the world and their inability to understand or empathise with those they see as the lower orders. We are fast going to hell in a bucket - but then the sixties was only about establishment guilt for winning WW2 was it not? Welcome to the new thirties and stand by for WW3 which none of us will survive. That is realistic is it not? The symptoms are all there to observe in our culture.
