PODCAST

Empathy When

Broken Dimanche Press

Reality has gotten strange. Throughout the summers of 2020 and 2021 we would like to invite you to join us at the poolside in Tropez for a series of readings and poolside chats with writers, poets and artists. Literature has the means to help us escape, reimagine the world anew, or offer bold new ways to engage with the world. It's empathy building. It's also fun. Between weekly live readings and interactions with the Tropez live webcam, BDP and Tropez are excited to announce Empathy When, Tropez Writing Podcast! We will be recording our invited guests and producing a weekly podcast for you to enjoy, socially distanced storytelling! www.tropeztropez.de for full programmeHost and co-producer: John Holten Sound design, recording and co-producer: Jemowit Nowak Executive Producer: Nora Nele HeinerfetterPhotos: Inkk Agop

Warning: I go full Oprah in this one! For the penultimate in the corona-time series of socially distanced podcast-readings, I chat with artist Elif Saydam. Saydam is a painter and writer, and has worked with Broken Dimanche Press in the past, most notably for a book and project for Berlin Art Week 2019 together with Vera Palme. The week after the podcast recording, they opened a show of new paintings at Tanya Leighton Gallery. They've contributed the mind-blowing online memory game Déjà Vu to Tropez's online summer exhibition REALITY. The conversation swirls around the practice of painting, writing and features some reading of their work.Check out the show at Tanya Leighton Gallery here: https://tanyaleighton.com/currentFor more info and documentation, as well as the chance to buy the blockbuster itself, check out: https://www.brokendimanche.eu/new-index#/colt-jonners-desecration-of-descentThe Silverfish-Featherduster romance Von Fleisch und Zucker can be found in the Montez Press Radio archive here: https://radio.montezpress.com/#/archive ...
