What makes a compelling story? How do artists disrupt everyday reality in the service of revealing subtler truths? This episode features artists who explore the virtues of ambiguity, mix genres, and merge aesthetic disciplines to discern not simply what stories mean, but how and why they come to have meaning. Featuring artists Katharina Grosse, Joan Jonas and Omer Fast.
How do artists push beyond what they already know and readily see? Can acts of engagement and exploration be works of art in themselves? In this episode, artists use their practices as tools for personal and intellectual discovery, simultaneously documenting and producing new realities in the process. Featuring artists Thomas Hirschhorn, Graciela Iturbide and Leonardo Drew.
Why do we break with some traditions and perpetuate others? Artists in this episode use life experiences and family heritage to explore new aesthetic terrain. Featuring artists Tania Bruguera, Abraham Cruzvillegas and Wolfgang Laib.
How do artists make the invisible visible? What hidden elements persist in their work? Is it the artist’s role to reveal them, or not? In this episode, artists share some of the secrets that are intrinsic to their work. Featuring artists Elliot Hundley, Arlene Shechet and Trevor Paglen.
