Art Attack: Stolen Images as public art is vandalised

Missing Image The Round Room at BMAG

It is a great shame that in one creative area where Birmingham truly leads; namely the street display of photography this has suffered  theft and vandalism. What seems clear is that the person or persons who did this valued in someway the images as they were stolen and not defaced. So why has this happened? I cannot give you an answer? It seems incredibly selfish.

For those of you who haven’t caught the exhibition yet; please try to as most images are still there. It is only the installation in St Paul’s Square that has been affected.

For a taste of how the exhibition was take a look  at this video.

    1. There is no gallery space dedicated to photography in Birmingham.

    2. Norman Lebrecht makes the point in Maestros, Masterpieces and Madness (http://www.normanlebrecht.com/books/) that giving away CDs in magazines and newspapers cheapened them and made people fail to value and respect the physical object as well as their content.

    Both of those probably have something to do with it. And people’s increasing sense of entitlement: remember, we are “worth it”. One person’s public art is another person’s invasion of their space. Who’s right?
