Art attack

Art attack: Dolan Cummings of the Institute of Ideas criticised the role in regeneration of Will Alsop's Stirling Prize -winning Peckham Library. He asked: 'When have people ever read themselves out of squalor?' Dolan argued that the worthy idea that 'the arts are good for you' is a bad thing for art and a bad thing for real social improvement.
