We have tried to light the corners as well as the central arena, and to not privilege... Read More »

Andy Votel’s first musical passion was hip-hop, which intrigued as well as attracted him: he wanted to find out how that music was made. Thanks to his resourceful father, he discovered that it was based on loops, and that many of them were samples from other songs. That was the start of his obsession with discovering sources, and of his scouring of records that were probably not earmarked for hi... Read More »

New podcast: Interview with Chris Dercon

New podcast: Interview with Chris Dercon

Chris Dercon, current director of the Tate Modern in London, talks about museums in times of crisis, the role of art in contemporary society, and new forms of collecting, exhibiting and engaging with the market. ‘When we talk about culture, we’re not talking about goods but about values’, says Chris Dercon (Lier, Belgium, 1958).
