New BBC 4 radio programme called ‘art attacks’ covering the destructive nature of art – it was pretty interesting and informative all round, but particularly great for Robert Rauschenberg’s account of meeting Willem De Kooning.
Series investigating the history of attacks on art works, from the earliest times to the present day.
When does destruction become an act of creation? Lawrence Pollard explores what lies behind some of the more bizarre assaults on contemporary art, including an exploding shed, an artist who destroyed every one of his possessions and art that has been both urinated on and whacked with a hammer.
