Nicholas Serota director of Tate has warned that ‘London’s increasingly high cost of living is making it impossible for young artists to live and work in the capital’. “Over the past 20 years London has been one of the great successes in the field of creativity. That success is very much threatened at present,” Serota stated in a […]
The boring fuckers have it in for us. They’re the ones who gleefully academicised art because they knew that real artists hate writing: essays, self-crits, artist’s statements, creative rationales, dissertations, speeches, press releases, blogs and begging letters. In the UK, in the 70s, the perfectly serviceable Dip AD was dumped in favour of a Bachelor […]

I was inspired to write about what I don’t like in the art world (especially in Italy), among other things at night while I slept, only to spend a sleepless night because of this, the inspiration is pretentious at times, but always very pleasant. I can understand that some people don’t like the way I […]
