Any sense of real subversion or originality Emin ever conveyed has long since been packaged, copyrighted, and reproduced as kitsch self-caricature. An interview in the latest issue of Time Out reads like a cut-and-paste summary of previous public statements: Emin’s views on life boiled down to bullet points:
• She is oppressed as a woman artist.
• She is happy to be childless.
• She is proud that she voted Conservative.
And so forth.
