Discussion: Assault on Culture III

The third  in a series of discussions initiated by Mute and Variant magazines questions the existing framework for independent cultural practitioners. Does commercialisation enhance or corrode ‘critical’ culture? Why does an institutional turn to ‘openness’, collaborative and politicised art practices coincide with privatisation? How will the financial crisis impact on arts funding and cultural practice and what would be a ’sustainable’ alternative? With panellists: Leigh French (Variant), Anthony Davies (Writer), David Jacques (artist), Richie Hunter (The Nerve). Chair: Josephine Berry Slater (Mute)
