‘I, Daniel Blake’, or how to stand up for yourself

Ken Loach’s latest film, ‘I, Daniel Blake’ (2016), brought him his second Palme d’or and is now finally out on the UK screens. Film critics and the general public have often reacted in a strong, emotional way, debating whether the fiction realistically depicts the British society today. Regardless of your personal and political opinions, it is therefore an important film to watch, even just to know what this fuss is all about. ‘I, Daniel Blake’ is frustrating and unnerving from the first scene, as it is the story of a middle-age man, Daniel (Dave Johns), who desperately tries to sort out his financial situation by following various administrative procedures, after he had suffered from a hear

Undressed: a fashion journey that matters

Illustration by Katie-Lloyd Hughes With its temporary exhibition Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear, the V&A celebrates the underrated history of lingerie, underwear, biancheria, ropa interior, bielizna, whatever you wish to call it. This is an interesting choice considering the exhibition had to compete with the important show held in Paris three years ago at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs: La Mécanique des dessous: une histoire indiscrète de la silhouette. To my surprise, the V&A exhibition is quite small and does not follow a chronological order. The window cases are ordered rather thematically which somewhat reduces our perception of the historical evolution of fashionable body shape

Dear Jonathan Jones,

Opinion Piece: AQA axes History of Art A-level After reading Jonathan Jones' recent article about the A Level art history scrapping where he derided the whole discipline I felt moved to write to him about his views (https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/oct/13/art-history-a-level-subject-private-schools-kenneth-clark). Dear Jonathan Jones, I am writing to express my deep disappointment at your recent swingeing attack on the discipline of art history. Although I agree with several of the points you raised about the accessibility of the field, the throwaway act of denouncing it as “a bit of a posh subject” is guilty of exactly what you condemn – the insular and elitist perception of a

Stop All the Clocks

Opinion piece: AQA axes History of Art A-level The abolition of the History of Art A-level will be met with the same indifference north of Watford than as if a Martian were told the Thai king is dead. Regardless of what Jonathan Jones or Griselda Pollock think, regardless of Jones’ stoic ignorance or Pollock’s unintelligent polemic against Jones (not I (yet)), the speed and sloppiness of Art History’s defence is interesting. Less than 20 state schools ran the History of Art A-level. Over 90% of British pupils attend state schools. This whopping, gargantuan disparity in A-level choice is not reflected at the Courtauld, where our state-private intake ratio is roughly 50/50. Clearly an A-level
