An assistant is a person (or by extension a device) that helps another person accomplish their goals
This blog is part of a research project and art exhibition at Bearspace entitled the Assistant, it collects together discussion and stories around the idea of artist's assistants and arts internships to build a discourse around the exhibition itself.

Assistants discussed on Radio 4

Grayson Perry is amongst the guests discussing artists that employ assistants to create their work for them (amongst other subjects). Listen to it here until next Wednesday.

We don't expect architects to build their own buildings. On the other hand, how would we feel about a novelist that didn't write their own novel, a poet that did not write their own poems?

Food for thought.
