Nobody knows who’s behind Cathedral of Shit (CoS), though I’ve seen a couple of suggestions circulating online. It’s a very funny (if occasionally vindictive) arts gossip/whistle-blowing blog. When I started working as a Gallery Assistant, I thought I had made a great discovery – only to find that everyone else in the office reads it – mostly aloud during coffee breaks. I still enjoy it, even though a couple of friends have been the butt of the joke.
The majority of those who fill its pages could do with a bit of ego-deflation. So in that sense it’s providing a great public service.
