Critics are calling MONA ‘childish’, but history shows us how much the public love an art forger

Experts’ negative reaction to Kirsha Kaechele’s admission she forged the three Picasso paintings that hung in the Ladies Lounge at Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is therefore no surprise.

Key Points: 
  • Experts’ negative reaction to Kirsha Kaechele’s admission she forged the three Picasso paintings that hung in the Ladies Lounge at Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is therefore no surprise.
  • Except people do – and will – travel to see forged works of art, because the public loves the art forger, and is fascinated by their illicit practice.

The art forger and his fans

  • The art forger has a cheeky, mischievous quality that makes them a lovable rogue, less a gangster and more a prankster.
  • Though their practice is illegal, in the wide spectrum of criminal activity the art forger is relatively benign.
  • With the criminal mastermind John Drewe (1948–) British art forger John Myatt (1945–) was involved in a forgery scheme so diabolical in nature it is believed to have altered art history.

Art, without pretension

  • Myatt thinks the public’s fascination with art forgery lies in the fake’s sense of authenticity that emanates from its lack of pretension.
  • He argues an original work embodies the capitalism and elitism and exorbitant value that renders such works remote from everyday experience.
  • Past exhibitions at MONA have created controversy and drawn protest from animal rights campaigners and enraged Christians.
  • Experts in this field such as Noah Charney and Thierry Lenain haven’t identified a single female art forger.

Loneliness in the workplace is greatest among men with traditional views about being the breadwinner

Although it is well documented men are less likely than women to talk about feelings and to seek help, our research found men’s work arrangements can be a significant contributor.

Key Points: 
  • Although it is well documented men are less likely than women to talk about feelings and to seek help, our research found men’s work arrangements can be a significant contributor.
  • This suggests the workplace and societal expectations around work are important in men’s experiences of loneliness.

Measuring loneliness

  • We measured loneliness by examining men’s responses to a question asking whether they agreed with the statement: “I often feel very lonely”.
  • We then used statistical techniques to ensure we were measuring loneliness and not similar constructs, such as social isolation.

The role of work

  • However, we were surprised to see work also played a significant role.
  • Insecure “gig” work, with its often unpredictable and long hours spent alone, disrupts work-life balance and can isolate people.
  • The work sector and social pressures around work should also adapt.

Shifting social norms

  • Public awareness and education campaigns can help shift gender norms and stereotypes by building knowledge and awareness, and may therefore reduce loneliness.
  • Volunteering provides purpose and opportunities to socialise, although recent evidence suggests volunteering has not returned to pre-COVID levels.

How governments can help

  • Government amendments to the Fair Work Act should help reduce job insecurity by allowing the Fair Work Commission to set fair minimum standards, including access to dispute resolution for “employee-like” workers, such as Uber drivers, who work through a digital platform.
  • Governments can also support activities of interest to men by ensuring regular funding for programs like Men’s Sheds or opportunities to work with animals.

How employers can help

  • A recent review suggests employers can: 1) Create opportunities for social connection, for example, dedicating time for non-work activities such as designing communal areas in offices to support connection.
  • 2) Support flexible and remote, potentially isolated workers by fostering workplace connections using virtual spaces such as online dinners, while still encouraging work-life balance.

Is objectivity ‘colonial’? Amy McQuire argues Black, activist journalism must compensate for our mainstream media’s blindness

If you are anything like me, an older white man in a position of privilege, you probably have heard of the first name.

Key Points: 
  • If you are anything like me, an older white man in a position of privilege, you probably have heard of the first name.
  • Mulrunji Doomadgee died in a Palm Island police cell in 2004 after an altercation with a police officer, Chris Hurley.
  • Black Witness: The Power of Indigenous Media – Amy McQuire (UQP) The other names I had not heard of.
  • McQuire rejects outright journalistic norms espoused by the mainstream media, such as objectivity, which she believes are “colonial”.
  • Quoting Aileen Moreton-Robinson, McQuire says this is why it is imperative that First Nations people take control of their representation.

‘I’m not going to bullshit you’

  • Alongside the Canberra press gallery were the hosts of breakfast television programs, signalling the seriousness of the news event.
  • They wanted to ask why rates of Aboriginal child removal were rapidly increasing.
  • McQuire was in Canberra too, interviewing the grandmothers for a story about their Freedom Summit sit-in.
  • McQuire reports that he told them: I’m not going to bullshit you.

The Palm Island uprising

  • The second example concerns the events following Mulrunji Doomadgee’s death in 2004, which are usually referred to as the Palm Island riots but which McQuire calls the Palm Island uprising.
  • To McQuire, most coverage of what happened in Palm Island exemplified the phenomenon of white witnesses becoming war correspondents in their own land.
  • McQuire acknowledges The Tall Man is a sympathetic account of a family and community seeking justice for Doomadgee, but argues Hooper portrays the uprising from a perspective of “white fear”.

Exposing and righting injustices

  • She is less interested in evoking a range of experience, as, say Debra Dank does in her 2022 memoir, We Come With This Place, than in exposing and righting injustices.
  • Throughout the next 29 years, he proclaimed his innocence.
  • After interviewing Martin Hodgson, a human rights lawyer specialising in wrongful conviction cases, McQuire teamed up with him to re-investigate Henry’s case.
  • Police alleged Henry would have trudged through the river’s mud with the body, but no mud was found on his clothes.

Anger ‘the best sustenance’ for writing

  • The police said she was being drunk in a public place and took her to the watchhouse in Maitland.
  • A coronial inquest ruled police failed to properly search her, over ungrounded concerns she had HIV.
  • According to McQuire, anger is “the best sustenance with which to write”.
  • She does not qualify the statement just as she is adamant that orthodox notions of objectivity in journalism are “colonial”.
