Brian Haw Design Wins
This is the non-event of the year: the Turner Prize ceremony up in Liverpuddle. The winner is predictably Mark Wallinger - here dressed in a bear suit - for State Britain, his pathetic copy of a display by anti-war protester Brian Haw. If anyone deserves the £25,000 prize for designing that mess, it's Mr Haw, not the twerp who copied it. And yes, Coxsoft Art did report that Wallinger was expected to win (CLICK). Personally I think the award should have been withheld this year. When you award dross, you devalue the award. Come to think of it, the Turner Prize should have been withheld most years. It may be worth £25,000 to the winner, but to the art world it has no value. Why reward Anti-art?
