The fury provoked by Rachel Whiteread 25 years ago is unthinkable today – thank goodness In 1993, an artwork by Rachel Whiteread was the subject of the biggest scandal in British art since the notorious Tate bricks affair of 1976, when the gallery was publicly pilloried for having squandered public funds on a sculpture by Carl Andre consisting of 120 firebricks. Ms Whiteread’s work was House , the concrete cast of a condemned terraced dwelling in the East End of London, which she had made under the aegis of the arts commissioner Artangel . House stood for only 80 days, but it was a remarkable lightning rod for debate, attacked and defended with equal fervour. The Liberal Democrat leader of Tower Hamlets council at the time denounced it with particular enthusiasm, calling it “utter rubbish” and “ a little entertainment for the gallery-going classes of Hampstead ”. Others, though, greeted it as a masterpiece and called for it to have a permanent life (which was not the artist’s intention), comparing its destruction to the iconoclasm of the English Reformation. One critic wrote lyrically of the cast’s uncanny ability to draw the viewer into “the world of the photographic negative, with its phantom-like reversal of known fact; the world that Alice enters through her looking glass; the world that lurks behind the molten silver mirror in Cocteau’s Orphée”. Meanwhile, it was sucked into arguments about housing and the fabric of London, about the British and their relationship to art, about political extremism and multiculturalism.
The Guardian view on Mugabe’s resignation: the end of an era in Zimbabwe | Editorial Zimbabweans cheered and sang as they learned that their president’s 37-year rule was over. But they understand the dangers ahead Robert Mugabe’s liberation hero to his people. When he lost their support he hung on by every means at his disposal. Now his brutal reign is over. But the hope is shaded this time by deep concern about what lies ahead. Forcing his resignation was hardly simple: it took much manoeuvring, a military intervention and the opening of impeachment proceedings before he had to bow to the inevitable. What comes next is mur
The Guardian view on translation: an interpretative and creative act | Editorial Translation is always an interpretation: an act of creation that also, paradoxically, demands a fierce loyalty to the original text. Translators are our guides into other times and territories. The sonnet was a southern European form brought to England through Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch.
The Guardian view on Theresa May: struggling to survive | Editorial The prime minister’s authority is broken. Yet the Tory party has little confidence that anyone else would do the job better Tory party politics, says a leftwing character in James Graham’s new West End play, Labour of Love , consist largely of “posh squirrels fighting in a bag”. This week, the Conservatives look all set to provide spectacular proof of Graham’s character’s scathing comment. Theresa May has come to the party’s conference in Manchester with her authority broken. In June she squandered her majority in an election she
The Guardian view on the Brexit talks: no veto for the DUP | Editorial Britain, Ireland and the EU had agreed a form of words. The Democratic Unionist party may be playing to its gallery but it cannot be permitted to override the wishes of the people of these islands The former Irish taoiseach in Brussels on Monday was consistent with such cynicism, it also became clear that something must give on the British side if the multiple disaster of no-deal, still craved by the Tory party’s anti-European and deregulatory zealots, is to be avoided.
The Guardian view on the UK’s next census: counting what counts | Editorial The Office for National Statistics is trying to find an accurate way of measuring the number of trans Britons. It’s harder than it looks Britons have been describing themselves more or less honestly to government at 10-year intervals since 1801, producing each decade a mirror that reflects back the changing world: more populous, healthier, more diverse and (nowadays) getting older. Each time, a few people declare themselves conscientious objectors, and some
The Guardian view on the ANC’s new leader: a fresh start | Editorial With the election of Cyril Ramaphosa South Africa has a chance to recover its moral authority, which the rainbow nation gained in its birth but has been lost in the tawdry dealings of the present South Africa’s African National Congress has done the world a favour in state has been conspicuously failing . Contracts were awarded to cronies; 783 counts of corruption if she had won . Her victory would have paved the way for South Africa to become a hereditary kleptocracy. By contrast Mr Ramaphosa is the best chance for recovering the optimi
The Guardian view on opera: still powerful, still relevant | Editorial The V&A’s new exhibition, the first to be shown in its elegant, recently completed extension by architect Amanda Levete, is devoted to the gloriously extreme world of opera. The show, a collaboration with the Royal Opera House, tells a story that begins with the birth pangs of the artform amid the new sounds of Monteverdi’s Coronation of Poppaea in Venice in 1643, continues with the Handel-obsessed London of the early decades of the 18th century, and passes on to the shock of the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro in 1786, with its dangerou
The Guardian view on Britain and the customs union: just do it | Editorial A form of words may still get the UK government over next week’s negotiating hurdle in Brussels. But the real answer is a change of policy In 2016, more than 17 million British people voted to leave the European Union. But – as the journalist to the 2016 Conservative conference . Later, they were included in the Mr Timothy lost his job .
The Guardian view on ‘the mutineers’: protecting parliament | Editorial They are presented as a threat to democracy. But all MPs who challenge the government play a part in strengthening it The “mutineers”, the 15 Conservative MPs pictured on the front of Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph, looked more like new members of a golf club than a clique determined to undermine the will of the people. But this was not meant as a joke, and it had consequences that were not in the least amusing. The 15, all of them potential rebels against the government’s decision to write the EU exit date on to the face of the withdrawal

The Guardian view on the Reformation: justification through faith | Editorial Luther’s 95 Theses were supposedly nailed to a church door in Wittenberg 500 years ago on Tuesday. It is impossible to read Luther, for all his coarse vitality, as an apostle of common sense. The reformation was an argument within western Christianity, not a rejection of all that had gone before.
The Guardian view on Brexit divorce: Tories divided | Editorial The puzzle of Northern Ireland has seen Theresa May commit to a soft Brexit. But politically she advocates a hard Brexit, outside the single market and customs union. This tension cannot be sustained Divorce is often a stressful, hostile process, riven by bad feeling on both sides. For Theresa May’s government, leaving a union with Europe is proving to be a humiliating experience. It has been embarrassing to witness ministers pursue a strategy of climbdowns to deliver the misguided exit from the European Union. On Friday morning the terms of

The Guardian view on Brexit transition: Mrs May must stand firm | Editorial The prime minister must stop indulging those Tories who would push her towards the EU exit without a deal There is no concealing divisions within the cabinet on Brexit but there is consensus that Theresa May’s speech in Florence three weeks ago is the basis from which talks should proceed. That is less impressive than it sounds, since there is no consensus on what Mrs May actually said in Italy. The main point of confusion, made apparent at the Conservative party conference last week, is the form of an “implementation” phase to begin on 2

The Guardian view on the Kurdish referendum: a fair question | Editorial The vote by Iraqi Kurds on their desire for independence, due to take place on Monday, poses real risks in an unstable region. But their case deserves to be heard If not now, when? This is the obvious and reasonable question of Iraqi Kurds seeking to exercise the right to self-determination – enshrined by the UN charter, though often ignored – in a referendum on Monday . They already enjoy a high degree of autonomy. They believe their key role in the fight against Islamic State demands recognition, giving them leverage over western powers;
The Guardian view on North Korea and the US: shouting into the wind | Editorial The insults traded between Washington and Pyongyang tend to induce despair or laughter. We need to take them more seriously The escalating rhetoric of both North Korea and the US president is prone to polarise its audience, resulting in two contradictory and equally imprudent strains of reaction. The first is panic. As the Trumpian tweets and blasts of Pyongyang propaganda grow more extreme, the spectre of war coalesces in the public mind. But it is still a spectre, and the most likely outcome is that the immediate crisis will pass as
The Guardian view on North Korea and Trump: the crisis isn’t over | Editorial Inter-Korean talks are an encouraging sign of de-escalation on the peninsula. But the underlying threat of Pyongyang’s weapons programme and a reckless US administration will not go away Like so many dictatorships, North Korea loves a good show. Sending its figure skaters and cheerleaders to next month’s Winter Olympics in the South is symbolically useful at home and abroad: promoting an image of national vigour; of a country that is recognised as part of the international system, not a pariah; of a country ready to do business again. As wi
