Bob and Roberta Smith: Why I’m making an art protest to Michael Gove | Art and design | guardian.co.uk

The Guardian is a newspaper/ news-site I check daily, particularly for the arts coverage.

I have made this point before, in my view science and art are both central to our humanity and civilization. It is short sighted to cut: access, training and opportunities in both. In addition, I don’t think “markets” value science and art anywhere near enough. Much of the value of art and science is not market-value, and for this reason support from patrons, from both private and public sources is necessary.

In this context, I worry when I see what is happening in the United Kingdom.
