Estelle Lovatt on BBC Radio 4 | Taking a loo break to celebrate Duchamp’s ‘Fountain’ Centenary

Is this art?

It is the centenary of Duchamp’s The Fountain, the already-made, or “ready-made”, urinal, which launched the 20th century’s controversial obsession with conceptual art.

Art critic Estelle Lovatt and art historian Glynn Thompson discuss the story behind the piece and whether or not it should be considered a work of art.

World’s first homoerotic stamps produced in Finland

Finland is to produce the “world’s first” homoerotic stamps, celebrating one of the country’s most famous artists – Tom of Finland.

The collection of three stamps includes a depiction of a naked backside with a face peering between the two legs.

Art critic Estelle Lovatt told the Today programme that the stamps were a “great statement” given that the country bans gay marriage.

Philatelic trader David Bailey added that Britain has also created “ambitious” stamps in the past, including one set of “magic” stamps that aimed to trick the eye.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday 17 April. Listen to the broadcast here.
