In Objecthood #3

Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/specials/objecthood3-martin-holbraad-quim-pujol/capsula

Curated by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros

This podcast is about objects, but more importantly, it is about some of the recent theories that offer new conceptualisations of objects in contemporary philosophy and art. In the previous episode, Florian Hecker and Erick Beltrán talked about zombies, vampires and chimeras. This third installment of the series delves into those ideas, under a completely different light, as anthropologist Martin Holbraad and artist and curator Quim Pujol discuss monsters, otherness, hybrids, agency and fetish.
