Erik van Lieshout wonders how you can be free to be politically critical and uncompromising as an artist, in a Western arts tradition, if you receive a major cash prize from a multinational. In his case by winning the Heineken Prize for Art. Do you accept the prize? And, if so, what do you do with the money? Indirectly he reflects on the historical position of the white male in both the arts and the capitalist system.
