ART IN PUBLIC SPACE:
NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
When we think about art in public space, England has seen some turbulent times the last couple of years. Recently, we have gone through protests, debates, and some removals of statues that had been quietly hiding in public view for years. The topics that are thrown up in this process are very important and go far deeper than disputes about particular sculptures of historical figures.
