Hey look guys it’s a drawing of fat bat-man I did in 2007 when I should of been doing my GCSE coursework that I’m posting to the Internet in 2014 when I should be doing my MA coursework. Three cheers for never learning!
When I was at college we went to this artist talk given by a textile artist. A mature student asked her ‘Do you think artists like Tracy Emin make young female artists feel like they have to be feminist or political to be successful?’. The way she said it was like being feminist or political was the worst thing a young female artist could be. I can’t remember what the speaker said but I remember thinking ‘no, you idiot, Tracy Emin doesn’t make us feel like we have to be feminist and political, she makes us feel like we can be feminist and political. She lets us know its an option.’
