sensation had nothing to do with the tate, but was saatchi's retrospective
brit-art collection show, elevated to museum status by the royal academy in
london and others subsequently. some people considered it to be the death of
yba at the time.

-- the observer report is also wrong in saying that saatchi lifted the
chapman's from obscurity by buying their 'hell'. they were well known
before.

---- it is problem in britain, that art journalism is poor. it is usually
jugdemental without having knowledge of current art debate, hence some 'art
correspondent' regurgitates the annual isn't-it-all-terribly-outrageous.
luckily, the annual but-there-is-no-painting outcry as in most of the
previous years is absent this time around.
