Between 2019 and 2022 I was in receipt of cash and support from Freelands Foundation, set up, funded and directed by Lis Murdoch, daughter of Rupert Murdoch, owner of so much media output in the UK and elsewhere, and big influence on government policies, laws, media coverage, how people grind. In turn, Lis and her money have a heavy hand in a great deal of the visual arts here in the UK, it makes me queasy. I took the cash; I tried to poke a bit, make some noise, shout and sulk. If I think about it now, I didn’t try anywhere near hard enough. And maybe I also feel I was asked to pipe down, in a roundabout way, get back in my box. There’s plenty to discuss about Freelands and their programme, leadership and ways of working. Anyway.
