Lately the media
establishments been drivelling on about CULTURAL DIVERSITY...
...like you've got your million dollar feature films but you've also
got no-budget Super 8 and you've got the Cork Street galleries and
you've also got Peckham adult evening classes in life drawing.. it's
all part of the Postmodern decentralised synchronic CYBERSCENE...
like you've got your unemployed lone parent but you've also got the
international corporate arts sponsor... its so diverse and there's
a niche for every shade of the MULTICULTURE... yes there's always
room at the bottom. And there's been some very laudable ARTS OUTREACH
initiatives involving the local community like sticking a video installation
in the local shopping mall or taking an opera company into the local
prison ... yeh fucking right this bogus diversity is not a spectrum
of equally respected and financed 'ART FORMS', it's the same old BOURGEOIS
HIERARCHY adopting a new brochure for the 1990's. The media establishment
has a network of power and privilege and the rest of us get jack shit.
