The two roles of the artist are as Mystical King or Holy Fool – Bob and Cedar Lewisohn discuss at Rude Britannia
Editing this conversation between Bob and Roberta Smith and Cedar Lewisohn shot in the Rude Britannia show at Tate Britain. Cedar was one of the curators of the show, which looked at the idea of a British sense of humour in art. They are discussing how Bob’s work sits alongside Hogarth and Cruikshank and the notion of the exhibition as being like a punchline to a joke.
If I include all the interesting stuff the film will be about 3 hours long. The dilemma of the edit.
