Empathy When

Aug 24 2020 • 59 mins

The sun is shining in this one! In this episode John Holten is joined live on the Tropez terrace by artist and writer Mitch Speed. Reading his much commented upon essay, 'The Case Against Art', the conversation is anything but boring. Mitch Speed is an artist and writer based in Berlin. His book about Mark Leckey’s 1999 video artwork Fiorruci Made Me Hardcore, was published Afterall Books in Autumn 2019. He contributes to several publications, including Frieze, Mousse, Momus, and Camera Austria.

This summer Broken Dimanche Press' John Holten invites you to join us poolside in TROPEZ for a series of readings and 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 our surroundings. 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, the Tropez Writing Podcast! We will be recording our invited guests and producing a weekly podcast for you to enjoy some socially distanced storytelling
