‘My Name is Charles Saatchi and I’m an Artoholic’ is a new title published by Phaidon. The book has the reclusive art collector, gallery owner and founder of a global advertising agency answer over 200 questions that have been sent over the years. Questions from which the answers you may not agree, but its interesting none-the-less to see Saatchi’s answers, Do you think you have messed up anybody’s life by flogging off all their work?, Is too much art now about shock value rather than creativity, like Tracey Emin’s unmade bed?, How can you tell a good Picasso from a bad Picasso? Come to that, how can you tell a good Damien Hirst from a bad Damien Hirst?…. and over 197 more.
