“I asked myself if it’s fair to ask the arts to deliver more on the diversity front than business or politics or journalism – sectors where the situation is still pretty grim. … Why does any of this matter? Because it is through the media, through movies, TV and games that we see the world and we see ourselves. Or would like to”.
Suzanne Moore on the BAFTA awards and the ‘whitewashing’ of British culture
what Suzanne says here chimes with what I have been saying about the art world. it’s as if culture is being redefined solely in the image of the elite and the rest of us are passively accepting it. That we want to enjoy entertainment made by rich white folk and that’s all. Is that true??
