    Wolfgang Tillmans Studio Visit Q&A, Monday 25th January 2021

    Wolfgang Tillmans Studio Visit Q&A, Monday 25th January 2021

    Wolfgang Tillmans RA (b.1968) is regarded as one of the most influential figures working within photography today. In 2000, he was the first non-British artist to receive the Turner Prize. Since the
    early 1990s Tillmans has been challenging the potentiality of making pictures. His work has epitomized a new kind of subjectivity in photography, pairing intimacy and playfulness with social
    critique and the persistent questioning of existing values and hierarchies. Through his seamless integration of genres, subjects, techniques, and exhibition strategies, he has expanded conventional
    ways of approaching the medium, and his practice continues to address the fundamental question of what it means to create pictures in an increasingly image-saturated world.

    Charlie Fox, Artist Talk 4th Oct 2019

    Charlie Fox (b. 1991) is a London based writer and curator.
    Curator of My Head is a Haunted House, Sadie Coles HQ 5 June - 31 August 2019
    ‘When I was a weird little kid in suburbia obsessed with horror of all kinds, my grandfather (who isn't
    alive anymore) built me a haunted house. I could pretend I was a ghost or a bat or a werewolf crying
    blood over a cardboard tombstone. It was a make-believe world where my imagination could get
    deranged and it was magic. My Head is a Haunted House grew out of that hallucinogenic memory
    and its psychic hold on me.’

    A short archive of fragmented audio from the RA Schools lecture programme

    A short archive of fragmented audio from the RA Schools lecture programme

    As the last final year exhibition that will take place in the RA Schools before it enters a significant renovation project, this year’s show celebrates the programme that inhabited the current architecture.

    Created by Rebecca K. Halliwell-Sutton, this 44 minute audio work is comprised of fragmented audio from the RA Schools lecture programme. The Class of 2022 selected various talks, lectures and seminars that have stayed with them since they started on the programme in 2018, to be included in the archive, as a way to open up the private space of the lecture room and academic programme.

Horrible sound design

Horrible sound design.
Varing levels in volume for each person in the conversation. I am sure this is lovely in person, but ther audio is terrible. The most recent episode with Penelope Watson is nearly unlistenable with headphones.
The episode with Anselm Kiefer in conversation with David Chipperfield has some of the most horrific sound I've ever heard on a podcast. In the podcast the announcer even mentions how bad the sound is. The entire first minute and a half of the episode is someone drinking and chewing. Disgusting. Overall cancels out the conversation with gross sound incompetence.
