  • Power and the People Keeping the Gates Shut, with Alice Rivard

    Mar 1 2021

    This is probably one of the most important episodes I have ever released and it's with author Alice Rivard. We talk about gatekeeping, the people 'keeping the gates shut' and power dynamics in the art world. If you ever felt like there were random rules or codes in the art world that you didn't understand or didn't fit into, then you'll love this episode!

  • Thinking Out Loud, Photography and the Memory of the Body

    Dec 7 2020

    Since recording the last solo episode on my Master's thesis, I realized that I never shared with you my work and research for my Bachelor's thesis. It's on the topic of photography, art as therapy, the memory of the body, and how art can help the creator go beyond the analytical mind. I hope you enjoy!
