Artist Michael Craig-Martin, the man who helped foster the development of the 'Young British Artists', discusses the early work of one of his most famous pupils, Damien Hirst.
Artist Michael Craig-Martin was an influential teacher at Goldsmith's College, London in the 1980s, where he became mentor to a gifted group of students, later known as the 'Young British Artists'. Among them was Damien Hirst.
TateShots caught up with Craig-Martin at Tate Modern, and asked him to revisit that fertile period, which saw Hirst create his first Spot paintings, Medicine Cabinets and his iconic installation 'A Thousand Years'.
Beth Harris, Sal Khan and Steven Zucker discuss the Damien Hirst sculpture, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, and issues of interpretation. Created by Beth Harris, Steven Zucker and Sal Khan.
