Roskilde Festival Art Zone 2018 (#120)

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…

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 #2 - Death

A bit of change up on this episode of By The Way, as Eric and Ando  talk about Sam Durant’s sculpture titled Scaffold. Originally created by Sam Durant for dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany, the work has since been purchased by the Walker Art Center, USA. The story does not end there. We hope you listen to hear about why some people say ‘That's a...

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...

The Long Way Home ft. Morten Søndergaard (#86)

Hello friends, is everybody enjoying this late summer weather in Copenhagen, making sure to talk with strangers about it? Today we are joined by the poet, translator and artist extraordinaire Morten Søndergaard. We had a relaxing sit down on a beautiful deck on a sunny day at the Louisiana Museum here in Denmark, looking out over the water, listening to the waves, watching people swim, and talked about words, art and life. It was glorious. He is a...

The Art Machine ft. Søren Behncke aka Papfar (#84)

Hello team, we hope you guys had a good summer. We’d like to thank you for your patience while we’ve been getting our shit together after a long and discombobulating summer. So many exciting things happening, just have to get everything in the right order. We have two items of good news to discuss today, and the first one is today's guest, Søren Behncke aka Papfar. We have been woefully ignorant of his work until...

The Transformation ft. Peter Callesen (#76)

Greetings gang, I hope you guys are well. It’s busy times here at Undergang HQ, which basically means everything is upside down at the moment, but we are fighting for a better future. There are big plans in the works, now it’s just the time to work our asses off in order to get there. And that is perhaps the best segue there ever could be into todays guest, Peter Callesen. He works in many media, but he is mostly know for his works with paper. It feels wrong to label his work as paper cuts, but that is undeniably the tradition it rises from. But it’s so much more. There is a delicacy, emotion and...

Imperfection/Perfection ft. Rose Eken (#63)

The indestructible Rose Eken graces the armchair today to talk about her current show at V1 Gallery. Rose's works deal with the artists space, both literally and internally, and the relationship of that space to the world at large, both the art world and otherwise. She works in many different materials, most of them very...

Burn Hierarchy ft. Jes Brinch (#61)

Hi gang, get ready for this one. Jes Brinch, one of the great art warriors of our time, took the time to come on the show and the results were just what we needed. In a time of increasing monoculture in art (and perhaps life), it's a pleasure to speak with an artist like Jes, who is tirelessly fighting the good fight for a stranger, more fun and more chaotic art practice and world. He holds no punches, and accordingly gets away with...

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...
