“Most of my peers at undergraduate level didn’t carry on making work, but many of them applied skills developed as students to start their own businesses. Art school should offer an education that is fundamental rather than peripheral to contemporary life. During my time at Goldsmiths we rarely talked about art but around it; seminars revolved around critical and economic theory, law, ecology and politics. Contemporary art was viewed as a node around which a complex network of global concerns moved. A good humanities education is about stepping back and seeing the larger picture, connecting the dots between disciplines.”
