In 2012 London, the divide between officially-sanctioned culture - branded, sponsored, and sold to the highest bidder - and a genuine public culture, accessible to and owned by everyone, is greater than ever. As well as describing the capital's high energy creative arts, 'culture' now has the smell of cordite, as we talk of the cultures of responsibility for phone-hacking or banking fraud. At the same time another culture of total surveillance (not to mention secret courts) carried out by the private sector is reinforced by the Olympics.
