2013 Programme: Artistic Battles

Is it about time that rappers dropped the bad boy image and grew up? Should we demand Rap Against Misogyny? Is it true that technology means everyone can be a composer now? Or is there something more to it than digital mix and match? Just who is it that decides that the public wants ever more public art? Is it any good? Was Pop Art? Is there anything to claims that art might be in our genetics? Does that mean everyone can be an artist now? If art is a genetic inheritance why then is some of it still off limits in private collections?
