If I could choose one government policy? Id abolish tuition fees | Josie Long 21.10.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Free education is not a crazy dream; some countries already have it. We should too, or we face a future where the study of literature or art becomes a luxury available to the rich alone When the government raised tuition fees, it made me angry and thirsty for political change. It felt as if they were taking away from people from poor backgrounds or on a low income the chance for social justice. The meaning of education changed from something that is inherently good and improving for society, to simply a means to being employable. Degrees became a transactional process about exchanging a qualification for money. Thats why, if I could choose any government policy, I would choose to abolish tuition fees. University is often seen as a middle-class pursuit. Historically, middle- and upper-class people gained an intellectual education, while working-class people were expected to learn practical trades. So when you talk about abolishing tuition fees, people often think youre only interested in the middle class. ...

Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude review a feminist artist ahead of his time 21.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Cortauld Gallery, London The Austrian artists passionate love of women is illuminated in one of the most important and sexy exhibitions of the year Sex and stockings: Egon Schieles nudes in pictures Egon Schiele is the man who loved vaginas. He quite liked stockings, too, as the Courtauld Gallery reveals in its sensational exhibition of his erotic art. But while his delight in stereotypical garb how many colours of stockings did they manufacture in the last years of the Austro-Hungarian empire, anyway? may make him seem like just another male voyeur, his delight in the vagina sets him apart as an artist who not only lusts after but genuinely adores women. No one can call him phallocentric. Many great modern artists in his age lived in terror of women. Picassos explosive painting Les Demoiselles dAvignon is full of fear and loathing. The spectre of female sexuality is a jagged, castrating threat in this and other modernist images. The surrealists can also be branded misogynists for their obsessive ...
Dear White People: satire with bite but a fractured funny bone 21.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Justin Simiens satire offers up familiar stereotypes: black separatists, white-wannabes and liberals in denial. Its when we dont fit into any of them that the real race confusion starts Dear white people, dont dance. Thats one of the pieces of unasked-for advice delivered by Sam White, student at Ivy League establishment Winchester University, whose radio show Dear White People helps to keep the campus racial tensions simmering. Another? Dear white people, the minimum requirement of black friends needed to not seem racist has just been raised to two. Sorry, but your weed man, Tyrone, does not count. Sams show gives Dear White People, the debut feature from writer/director Justin Simien, its title and her calm but ferociously judgmental voice speaks loudest, clearest and longest. But just as Dear White People seems to be a valentine to Sam (Veronica Marss Tessa Thompson) and her withering dismissal of the black students she sees as tap-dancing for white approval and the white students clownishly adopting ...

On Saturday, one of the seven northern white rhinos left on this planet died, leaving just a single breeding male to ensure the survival of a species aggressively hunted into near-extinction.

This was the haunting and apt backdrop for the ninth festival of ideas held at Londons Serpentine Gallery, a two-day marathon that this year grappled with the topic of extinction and the worryingly prescient spectre of the end of the human race.
