[Will] Gompertz says he does not know what name to give to the last twenty years of art, but, for me it is definitely conceptualism. Or perhaps financialism.

"We are living through a modern art boom," writes Gompertz, but he simply does not pay enough attention to why this might be. The answer is the flood of hot money, much of it dubiously acquired by bankers, into the market.
