Fire-damaged Glasgow School of Art wins Turner Prize
Art lovers around the world were ‘devasted’ when they heard most of the student works in the Glasgow School of Art had survived.
Miraculously, a large empty room, where an exhibition titled ‘The History Of Scottish Art’ was being held, also remained completely untouched.
Tate supremo Sir Nicholas Serota urged authorities ‘under no circumstances’ to restore the building and Charles Saatchi offered £60 million to ‘save it for the nation’ in its current condition.
Unconfirmed speculation suggests the blaze could have been started as a revenge attack by the person whose rejected idea it was to demolish a few tower blocks at the opening ceremony of the upcoming Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
