PRIZE DEMO 2003
The guests for the Prize were given a preview of the
'original' before they went in to see the Chapman Brothers copy inside.
Guests included Jay Jopling, Victoria Miro, Sarah Kent ("fucking
Stuckists... yes, you can quote me"), Tracey Emin and Dinos Chapman.

Translation:" The Stuckists, a conservative group of artists who react against contemporary conceptual art, demonstrated loudly outside as usual, dressed as clowns. For the second time, Sir Nicholas Serota had to give himself their "Art Clown of the Year" award. It is not known whether he took the cream cake, which goes with the award, in order to push it in his face as in a slapstick film."
