Corruption in public life is pernicious, but in creative activity it can be an essential tool of inquiry and challenging continuities and conventional wisdom. This pair of Thinkspace events will explore how these paradoxes and subversions affect our social, intellectual and cultural fabric - and ask whether corruption is always corrosive.
