I don’t want to make any judgements myself, but I just wanted to share this link with you:
I just noted how few artists, and British artists in particular, are in the list. OK, Al Weiwei is third, and there are a couple of German artists in the top ten, but I can only recognise Damien Hirst at 41 as a British artist, and Nicholas Serota, the Director of the Tate, as the highest placed Brit at 8. I liked Pussy Riot at 57 one place higher than Jeff Koons.
Is there any significance to this list? Should artists be the ones with power rather curators, gallery owners and museum directors? Does it matter? As I said, no judgements from me.
