You like Damien Hirst?
It seems to me that, at least in the realm of visual art, what succeeds in the market are the pieces which are the least artistic; e.g., Damien Hirst.

That would require that the government possess taste and class, though - which is obviously impossible.
Hello again, Just writing to thank you all for the replies; you've provided me with lots of options to consider.
I identify wholeheartedly with the philosophy of Cynicism, so feel perfectly free to sound like a cynic - though I don't really think a devotion to profit squares with the teachings of Diogenes.
