Default It's the Arts:$ for Nothing

Literally. Here's an unbelievable story from the UK art world, except it's not.

"BRITISH taxpayers have paid 1,500 for a foreign painter to exhibit INVISIBLE pictures.

Polish artist Agnieszka Kurant got the Arts Council England grant for a show that included "a painting that hasn't been painted yet".

Warsaw-based Kurant's Snow Black exhibition also had "an invisible sculpture" and "a movie shot with no film in the camera".

Her windfall was among 147,755 given to foreign artists by the Labour government in the year to last April.

Culture Department officials insisted there were "substantial benefits for English artists and audiences".

But Tory MP Matt Hancock condemned it as "a staggering waste".

The Sun told last week how 29,000 of public cash was spent moving art and other items abroad."

Meanwhile at home, we're spending billions to be imperialists and to what end?


Timeframe until the U.S., Canada and Mexico have a united currency: Near future.
