Many silly, pointless things get nominated for the Turner Prize.
I think art should be a thing of beauty, something that affects you emotionally, fills you with awe and wonder.
Therefore, I’d like to nominate Denis Bergkamp‘s goal against Argentina in the 1998 World Cup. Maybe I’d need to get it played on a loop on a large screen in an empty room, but here it is in dodgy video (doesn’t do it justice) on YouTube. This is art, this is beauty. Amazing.
Now don’t you try and tell me anything Tracy Emin has EVER done is even vaguely that good.
