After a longer pause we are back with a fantastic conversation the artist Nathan Gulick, visiting town from LA for his solo show, Waiting Room, at C4 Projects. We met and had a live recording at C4, and it was both a lot of fun and very interesting. Nathan is eloquent and engaged, and we got a ….Read More
And we are back! Thanks for hanging in there. Today we have a conversation we’ve been really excited to share with you, with the artist FOS, also known by his government name of Thomas Poulsen. This talk was recorded during the summer when he had a quite ambitious show up at Gallery Nils Stærk here in Copenhagen, and it turned out to…Read More
The warm months have fully settled upon the land, and with every Danish summer comes the yearly tradition of Roskilde Festival, one of the world’s largest music festivals. Around 130,000 people attend the festival, which is run by a non-profit organization. For many years now they have also had a surprisingly ambitious art zone during the festival, with running themes and critical commentary on social and political issues. This year, for example…Read More
We have Signe Vad on the show today, which is very exciting, and has been a long time coming. She is an exceptionally hard working artist, with tons of projects always in the works as well has her own production, and she somehow gets it all done. She is a serial collaborator, exhibition space leader and cultural front runner, and we have the pleasure of hearing about it. Our talk is also fascinating because…Read More
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…Read More
Today we are terribly excited to bring you an actually well timed conversation, with the wonderful Jonas Liveröd. It’s been a while coming, but it fits perfectly, because already on this Friday, April 20th, he has a solo show opening at the great Steinsland Berliner Gallery in Stockholm. So as awesome as the conversation we are about to play for you is, it’s always better to...Read More

By The Way, also wants to give a shout out to The Conversation Art Podcast, as Jenny Danielsson, our co-host from episode #11 Los Angeles and Shrinkage In The Art Market was interviewed. They are making a great podcast and you all should go take a listen.Read More
Today, in serendipitous timing, we are joined by the art group Sara, Peter & Tobias, who were kind enough to sit down with us for a wide ranging conversation about their first book, Phenomina. And just last week they won the British Journal of Photography International Photography Award for their new project, The Merge. We had a very interesting conversation together not only about their projects, but also about...Read More
By The Way, welcomes guest Jenny Danielsson from the Danielsson & Carlson podcast.
Jenny shares the news about the recent firing of Helen Molesworth at Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Arts. Jenny and Eric then speculate what might have led to the firing. In the second news story, Eric shares the most recent “health report” of the art market by USB and Art Basel. Are the big galleries and collectors really all that good for the art market?
Let us know what you think. Why was Helen Molesworth fired? And what is your assessment of the health of the art market?Read More
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...Read More
Ah, the march of time, the learning of lessons, the rediscovery of delight! What a great talk we have for you today! 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...Read More
Eric and Ando take a trip around the world in this episode. Iranian contemporary art gallerist is facing a jail time, corporal punishment, and confiscation of their assets for their involvement in the art world. We discuss street artist Invader, and his tasteless placement of his works in the country of Bhutan. We first spoke about Invader in BTW episode #1 - Thievery. Lastly, we discuss a legal case in France, where Facebook is being charged with limiting the freedom of expression of a school teacher. The teacher charges that Facebook deleted his account when he posted Gustave Courbet’s The Origin of the World (1866).
We had the great pleasure of meeting and speaking with Yazan Khalili last week, who is the winner of the extract prize 2015 from GLStrand, and just opened his solo show there, by the name of No One Saw The Colours. We had a really fantastic talk about making art, politics, representation and working under tough conditions. Yazan is very dedicated to...Read More
Today Eric and Ando blaze through 4 topics. Pussy Riot seeks asylum in Sweden, and the Guggenheim offers Donald Trump a golden toilet by Maurizio Cattelan. Topics become a little more serious when they bring up Nan Goldin and the opioid crisis in the US. Goldin calls on her fellow artists and art institutions to resist the Sackler Family and Purdue Pharma. And what would be an episode BTW without...Read More
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...Read More
Welcome back, and happy New Year to all! We have a great artist and incredibly sweet human on the show today; Nanna Debois Buhl. I have gotten to know her a bit over the last year or so and the more I hear about what she does, and how she does it, the more I fall in love with her work. It’s thoughtful, well-researched and also very...Read More
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...Read More

Cultural Bandwidth is the world's first podcasting network based around art, and we couldn't be happier to share this with you. There will be a lot of information about exactly...Read More
It finally has come to Eric and Ando talking about Instagram. Take about 5 minutes to watch the video clip in the links below to get a better understanding of what we are discussing today.
Audiences are more comfortable viewing and buying art via their phones than ever before. Why would there not be curators creating exhibitions with that interaction in mind. A trend of “MADE-FOR-INSTAGRAM” exhibitions are trying to change the way...Read More
