  • Abstract

    Part 12. John Latham (JL) continues on a philosophical note about 'mind' and 'thing'. JL returns to his relationship with Imperial College and Chris ]sham where Islam has identified some parallels between his work and JL's work and where they are discussing a 'show trial' to explore some of the possibilities of this insight. JL returns briefly to discussing the Lisson Gallery. This leads on to talking about the problems of commerce and conceptualism which leads back to JL's interest in the artist being valued in relation to other public indices.
