The Space In-Between ft. Mathias & Mathias (#118)

We are back again today with another super interesting talk, with the artist group Mathias & Mathias. They had a show up at Overgaden a little while back, and we were fortunate enough to have the chance to sit down and talk to them. It was a great conversation, touching on many topics, with a lot of behind the scenes talk, which is always interesting. It’s good to hear from working artists what…

The Level of Truth ft. Johan Furåker (#115)

When you talk process with an artist, many similarities between practices begin to pop up over time, but there are also those occasions where you hear about more independent ways of working and thinking. Todays conversation with Johan Furåker is of that ilk, one of the ones which are quite inspiring. He’s a thoughtful artist, and methodical, and if you look at his work, you can...

BTW #10 - Should Thomas Kinkade Paint Trump's National Portrait?

It’s episode 10!

 

Barack and Michelle Obama’s National Portraits were revealed and the gossipy side of the internet was a buzz. On this episode, Ando and Eric discuss the good, the bad, and crazy surrounding these two interesting paintings. They dive into the history of The National Portrait Gallery at The Smithsonian, and the other Contemporary artists represented in the collection. A bizarre and racist interpretation of the Barack’s painting by the Alt-Right. The most important is topic though is who should be commissioned Donald Trump’s portrait?

In the middle of significant personal and political chaos we are so very proud to bring to you today a wonderful conversation with Ditte Ejlerskov recorded a couple of months ago. Talking to her was a reminder of so many important things one must hold dear as an artist; choosing the...

A Different Time ft. Todd James (#112)

One of the great things about making this show is the wide variation in experiences and interests we get to hear from the guests. After Nanna last time, we have a completely different type of artist on the show today, with a very different kind of story. It’s nice, because as artists, you slowly start to realize that there isn’t a single way forward, or a rule, or a technique to“make it”. So in that spirit, we have...

BTW #6 - A da Vinci and the Flaming Bag of Dog Poop

How could we not talk about this most recent Christie’s contemporary art auction.  The record breaking painting "by" Leonardo da Vinci titled Salvator Mundi sold for $450,312,500.  We aren’t talking about the obvious talking points, instead we go deeper into the painting’s history. It all plays out like Dan Brown novel. Yes, the guy who used to own Salvator Mundi was imprisoned in the 1990’s for...

Unpainted Paintings ft. Malin Gabriella Nordin (#107)

We are joined today by artist extraordinaire Malin Gabriella Norden, who was here in town for the CHART Art Fair, because the homies over at Steinsland Berliner gallery were showing some of her works. She was awesome to talk to, and she keeps the game of being an artist to it’s bare basics, and we mean that positively. There isn’t a lot of extraneous material around her work and practices, and it’s a...

The Cold Fact ft. Zven Balslev (#106)

We have the fantastic Zven Balslev on today, which has been a long time coming, and we ended up talking about many facets of the art world, having a practice, and about the kind of expectations-slash-priorities you might have. One of the great things about making this show is hearing diverse viewpoints on this mess of making art, and Zven’s view on it is great. It’s one you honestly don’t...

The Puzzle ft. Tal R (#100!)

We are back with our special 100th episode! It’s been over three years of this program, 100 guests, and a lot of ups and downs. We are thankful to each and every one of you, as well as to all the galleries who have been supportive along the way. Did we mention that Tal R is the special guest for the 100th episode? He needs no introduction right? He has a huge show up at Louisiana, and you should go see it if you haven’t. We talked about...

The Life of an Artwork ft. Rasmus Høj Mygind (#87)

The guest on todays episode is somebody we’ve heard a lot about throughout the years, but through our own intellectual laziness had not seen much work by. We can only assume you, dear listener, have been smarter and more on top of it than we have because Rasmus Høj Mygind has been out there getting good work done, helping run...

We have been woefully ignorant of his work until...

The Great Illusion ft. Kasper Eistrup (#70)

Today we have the last episode of the year, it’s just a great one to go out on. We have Kasper Eistrup on the show. The artist Kasper Eistrup. The musician Kasper Eistrup. More or less every Dane knows who Kasper is, but for y’all out there in the larger world, he was the front man for one of the largest danish bands ever, Kashmir. They made music for over 20 years, and they are huge over here. Also abroad, but especially here. But this show is about art, and Kasper has been making art since even before he began playing music, and now has put the music on pause in order to pursue a career as an artist. He’s been showing work consistently for over 8 years, and now he just had his...

Finding The Middle ft. Troels Aagaard (#67)

Today we have the pleasure of sharing a talk with you about an underrepresented place in the art world, the middle. Troels Aagaard joins us for a candid and honest talk not only about his life and work, but also about being at a certain, often overlooked, point in ones career. There is so much talk about those just starting and those who've reached the top, but what about the...

Dandies & Pesants ft. Daniel Richter (#65)

Do you guys also miss old school shmack talking? Then join us for a refreshing talk with the unfettered Daniel Richter. It's nice to hear somebody speak openly in the normally quite guarded art world, and it's even nicer when it's somebody who has something to say. Daniel Richter is obviously a talented painter, and he has a great way of talking about art & life, and as far we can tell...

What It Could Be ft. Bo Christian Larsson (#59)

Today’s guest is perhaps the kindest man in the art world, Bo Christian Larsson. He’s a magician of art, he works with his hands and his heart, and he’s a pleasure to talk to. He has lived an adventurous and curious life, and you can see that reflected in his way of making art and living life. Some (like us) could be jealous of the adventures he...

Do It Together ft. Christoph Ruckhäberle (#57)

Hello friends, we are back! And yes, we are still here to talk about art. Yet again, we have a great guest on the program today, the very thoughtful Christoph Ruckhäberle.

There is a lot of great stuff in this talk, but some of...

The Checklist ft. William Powhida (#53)

We live in a strange world, and an even stranger art world. Luckily William Powhida is here to firmly poke a stick in the eye of the art world, and we love it. We were lucky enough to get to sit down with him right before the preview of his exhibition here in Copenhagen, at Gallery Poulsen. We got to talk about his work, the art world, and the simple joys of quality shit talking. But really this episode is an in-depth look at...
