The New Dr Great Art podcast, Episode 56: Academicism in Art. An ‚academicist‘ in the arts is someone who over-idealizes the art academy; one who follows the precepts taught there and insists others do so as well. Here is a short history of academicism and thoughts about the problem now.

The new Dr Great Art podcast episode 54: Grief in Art.
A short, yet gloomy, podcast for summer. My mother Ruth Staff Brandl passed away very recently at the age of 87. In this tough, sad time, my mind still approaches the world through art, yet I find it hard to find any comfort therein. In our artworld nowadays, it seems almost ridiculous. Grief, though, like most important and complex human emotions, has been the subject or inspiration for many great works of art.

The New Dr Great Art podcast Episode 53: Dictatorship of the Consensoriat
The creation of a term for one of the problems in the artworld, one very obvious usually around June each year when we all go to the Basel Art Fair, often the Venice Biennale, documenta etc. A phrase for the convenient conformity of (small) minds to have identical tastes in order to achieve hegemony.

The new Dr Great Art Podcast, Episode 52: Julia Kristeva, Metaphor as Resistance. Julia Kristeva, the a Bulgarian-French philosopher, offers in her theorization hope for resistance against ruling ideologies within artworks themselves. Artists can produce „openings“ by creating metaphors through serious play, turning rules upside down, displaying pleasure, laughter and poetry which include thoughtful critique — delightful, anarchistic, alternative visions that are embodiments of and empower other forms of resistance.
