British Council Furore
On Thursday the actors union Equity passed a motion of no confidence in Arts Council England (CLICK). Today 100 big guns in the UK arts scene put their names to a letter to The Guardian newspaper condemning British Council's proposal to slash its visual arts department. It was not a happy ship, tra-la-la. If you look at the signatories (CLICK) you'll spot a lot of piffle peddlers from the Brit. Anti-art Establishment. Could it be that the British Council has realised that UK art has become an international joke, thanks to the mindless dross promoted by the Anti-art Establishment?
