Grayson Perry video in the Guardian

I've tried, but despite the fact that I know that Fine Art is higher currency than Craft in the Art world in general, I can't renounce Craft. I love the way it brings together workmanship, engineering, ideas, visual impact and history in one. So I like the ease with which Grayson Perry touches on fine art and craft debates in this video of him talking about his recent exhibition at the British Museum. There's a particularly poignant bit about how most of the art in Tate Modern, including, as he says 'every bit of poo' is there only because it's attached to someone famous, whereas most of the work in the British Museum is anonymous.
