Another Triumph For The Arts

Excuse me, but I’m having another Victor Meldrew moment about a dance artist who wants to induce an epileptic fit in herself in the name of art. The statement from an Arts Council spokesperson is indicative of the levels of fuck-wittery going on:
"Rita is an important artist whose work deserves to be seen and the Arts Council both respects the creative decisions she makes in her work and supports her right as a disabled person to be heard."
I’ll hand you over to David Thompson for the full Meldrew rant…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
