How do crazy auction prices change our experience of art? Are critics really the 'courtier class' to taste-makers who know nothing of what they put on their walls, as American critic Dave Hickey claimed? What has happened to connoisseurship? And, if indeed it has, does it matter that art as commodity has taken over from art as art? To discuss these provocative questions is critic, broadcaster and author of Art Crazy Nation Matthew Collings, The Arts Desk critic Mark Hudson and The Art Newpaper’s markets expert Melanie Gerlis. Chairing the debate is The Arts Desk critic and editor Fisun Güner.
