Shaping Brexit Britain From Our Shared Recent Past

A Women’s Equality Party that alienates its most vulnerable

A Women’s Equality Party that alienates its most vulnerable

Far from its claim of making politics more diverse and representative, the WEP appears to be a platform for a singular elite to wield power by enacting a form of feminism that only achieves women’s liberation by curtailing that of men.

Artists4Brexit: Response to Matthew Parris

It has long been a curatorial fantasy of mine to organise a re-staging of a boxing match that took place in 1972 between the German artist Joseph Beuys, regarded as a giant of modern art, with a local art student of his.
