Do the Jabba

Nice piece on the Beck’s (as in beer) Futures art prize on the Beeb’s entertainment section – one of this year’s entries is a performance piece featuring a life-sized Jabba the Hut (with bikini-clad slave gals judging by the picture). I was going to comment something along the lines of ‘who said popular mass culture can’t be high art?’ but then realised I knew very well it was the Arnoldian school and the numpties who followed them.
