Public Displays Of Art
23 February 2022
Contemporary art… so if nothing else, it won’t be removed. Well, not currently. Because the thing is, contemporary things are always judged by contemporary people. And non-contemporaries or post-contemporaries have a way of dismissing any contemporary considerations. Given that they, too, believe they are the most wise, compassionate, correct and moral generation that ever lived. So yeah. Arts good. I like having things around to look at, or lay wreaths at. Not that I can pretend to be particularly informed or sophisticated when it comes to my artistic instincts. For example – and I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks this way – but when I look at this, the one thought that won’t go away is: If that kid pees there’ll be trouble.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
