Reality Bites Turner Contender

As part of his entry in this year’s Turner Prize, artist Phil Collins held a “news conference” with stars of reality TV shows. “Cameras were trained on the media, who, in turn, had their cameras focused on the nine ‘victims’ of Supernanny, Wife Swap, Trisha et al. All felt they had been exploited in some way – manipulated by seemingly friendly producers who ruined their lives and spat them out in the TV production line.”
