Red Rag to a Bull

Red Rag To A Bull is a “public service site funded by a cartell of rich and powerfull light industrialists who wish to remain annonymous.”

Turns out those wishing to remain anonymous include Jamie Reid, James Cauty, and Billy Childish and one of their purposes is to raise the £200 for Cartrain, a 16 year old artist who Damien Hirst demanded money from for using his diamond skull in a print. Another is‘as “a creative exercise that mocked and exposed the idiocy an overbearing and thoughtless approach to copyright control that creates fear and censorship in the arts.”

The shop shuts down today, but have a look anyway.

    Hirst is to art as Metallica is to music.
