The Fine Art of Voting
Bewildered by former Minister of State for Schools Michael Gove's inexorable undermining of art education, not to mention his successor MP Nicky Morgans's jaw-dropping pronouncement about 'the arts holding kids back', Patrick Brill, better known as artist Bob and Roberta Smith, has decided to stand for parliament as an independent in Gove's Surrey Heath seat, on an 'all schools should be art schools' ticket. Louise Clarke quizzed him about the ramifications of imperiled art education and the stockbroker belt realpolitik, and what he would do in the unlikely event that he actually wins.
