Arts and minds

January 8, 1999

Your round-up of 1998 ("Who made a splash?", THES, January 1) says the "stunt" last May by the Leeds University fine art students was a "staged simulation aimed at raising fundamental questions about truth and art". Am I spoiling the fun if I ask what questions, to what purpose, and what notions of truth and what theories of art, perception and society do they and their apologists have in mind? I think we should be told.
