Page Breaks – 20 October – ‘Who is the Bad Art Friend?’

Our next Page Breaks session will be on 20 October at 1 pm, and we’ll be discussing the recent viral NYT magazine piece, ‘Who is the Bad Art Friend?’.

“Her letter, it wasn’t art! It was informational. It doesn’t have market value. It’s like language that we glean from menus, from tombstones, from tweets.”

Text (Reading)

  • Robert Kolker, ‘Who is the Bad Art Friend?’ (via New York Times Magazine)
  • If you’re struggling to access the reading, email T.Johnson@bham.ac.uk for access.
