Hey Heather, one of my students has chosen an artwork created by a prisoner - she saw it at a recent exhibition of prisoner art in London. She is comparing it with two pieces by Boltanski ('Personnes' and 'El Caso'). The connections are great but can she use this non-professional artist prisoner as a source?

Hi JIm, how interesting! I think as long as she has plenty of bibliographical source material for Boltanski it should be fine. If in doubt, she could include another " outsider artist" with some published material.

Hi Heather,
I have a student comparing Arthur Rackham's Alice in Wonderland illustrations with Ralph Steadman's Alice in Wonderland. Would this difference in time frame (approx 100 years) be considered different cultural contexts? She would obviously need to discuss context, society, values etc..

Hi Kim, i think this is a great comparison, with lots to comment on, and certainly contextually different, but to be on the safe side ( if you get some super picky examiner) add a third artwork, from a different cultural background, like Walt Disney...
