  The high-end art world is one of the most secretive—and largely unregulated—global enterprises. The list of its associations with crime runs long and deep from art theft to tax fraud, to forgery, and money laundering. Join Michael and his guests Stefan Koldehoff and Tobias Timm as they discuss their new book,  Art and Crime, The Fight Against Looters, Forgers, and Fraudsters in the High-Stakes Art World. Joining Michael as a special guest to help facilitate this conversation is Dr. Philip Eliasoph, Professor of Art History & Visual Culture at Fairfield University, Connecticut. Guests Stefan Koldehoff and Tobias Timm Stefan Koldehoff, born in 1967, is culture editor at Deutschlandfunk in Cologne, and writes for Die Zeit and art - Das Kunstmagazine among other publications. In 2008 he received the Puk journalist prize for his investigative research. Koldehoff and Tobias Timm are the author of Art and Crime, and in 2012, they published False Pictures, Real Money on the Beltracchi case. The book was awarded the Prix Annette Giacometti and the Otto Brenner Prize. Galiani also published his books The Pictures Are Among Us: The Nazi-Looted Art Business and the Gurlitt Case (2014) and Me and Van Gogh: Pictures, Collectors and Their Adventurous Stories (2015). KOLDEHOFF and TOBIAS TIMM were recently counted among the 100 most influential people in the art business by the national German magazine monopol. Tobias Timm, born in 1975 in Munich, studied urban ethnology, history, and cultural studies in Berlin and New York. He has written for Die Zeit's feature pages from Berlin on architecture, art, and crime. In 2012, he and Stefan Koldehoff published False Pictures, Real Money on the Beltracchi case. The book was awarded the Prix Annette Giacometti and the Otto Brenner Prize. TIMM and STEFAN KOLDEHOFF were recently counted among the 100 most influential people in the art business by the national German magazine monopol. Dr. Philip Eliasoph Professor of Art History & Visual Culture, Dept of Visual & Performing Arts. As founder of Fairfield's Art History program (1975), Professor Eliasoph has been devoted to expanding students' knowledge, understanding and direct observation of world art. Sharing his passion for the history of art, he has focused on western art in the traditional and revolutionary contexts. Publishing on Renaissance models, 'bel disegno' academic, canonical methods, his writing and public views converge on the muscular shifts of mid century American art styles - from Social Realism to avant-gardist Abstract Expressionism. In his critique of recycling styles, he proposes a history of art without labels, periods, or categorizations. More broadly, his lectures and museum tours are based on the continuum of style/zeitgeist progress from antiquity to the cyber age. The heritage of painting, sculpture, architecture and mass media as revealing 'mirrors of time, place, and society.' Combining Ignatian inspired 'discernment' with the humanistic qualities of aesthetic enjoyment, his lively, dynamic talks expand the pleasures of viewing the visual arts. Setting out with basic questions - speaking with freshman students or senior, lifelong art lovers, we come to explore: 'what is Art?'* 'why does humanity treasure its values?'* 'how can I learn to actively critique, analyze and appreciate art as part of my own intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth as a fully realized human being"? In sync with an educated audience's aspirations to follow Jefferson's idea of 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,' he hopes to inspire and delight art enthusiasts of all ages. Often invited as a public lecturer, connoisseur and animated raconteur, his hope is to share his own artistic journeys as multi-dimensional 'classroom/museum without walls.' With decades of 'in country' art directed programs, he has escorted thousands of art pilgrims to museums, cultural landmarks, world heritage sites throughout the US and Europ...

Last fall, Kerry participated (as community consultant of lived experience) in a virtual Inclusive Design Multisensory Museum course through Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD U). The instructor of that course was Melissa Smith, who works at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) as Assistant Curator, Access and Learning. This week on Outlook we speak with Melissa and two students who took the course about what was covered throughout and about the multisensory translation projects the students were tasked with creating from artworks available at the AGO, all while figuring out how to adapt their work during Covid times. We discuss art as a human right and how inclusivity is different in museums and galleries in different parts of the world, some of the challenges and opportunities of translating the artworks virtually, and Melissa shares some of the guest speakers she invited to present which offer as many diverse perspectives as possible. We hear from students Parth Shah and Kyrie Robinson about their chosen art piece, a 60s sculpture by Claes Oldenburg titled Ice Cream Soda and Cookie and about all they gained by working, utilizing a multisensory approach to translating this sculpture, along with co-design and collective collaboration throughout. A sculpture so good, you could almost eat it. What memories does ice cream and a cookie bring up for each of us? As our show originally airs on Radio Western, we also mention how Melissa got her Masters in Art History from University of Western Ontario and we also give another shoutout of a tribute to recently deceased Outlook guest and longtime advocate John Rae whom Smith knew for several years after he'd reached out to her about accessibility at the AGO.

In this second of three episodes on Rembrandt, they tackle genre scenes (those would be scenes of everyday life) and portraits. Rembrandt is the consummate storyteller and in these etchings he gives us regular, everyday people like print dealers, cooks, beggars, and even rat catchers. His etchings are brimming with life. Remember, Rembrandt lives in Amsterdam, which is part of Holland, a country that had recently gained independence from Catholic Spain. These subjects are new territory for us.

The Strategy Skills Podcast: Management Consulting | Strategy, Operations & Implementation | Critical Thinking

Welcome to Strategy Skills episode 240, an episode with best-selling author, lawyer, and art historian, Amy Herman. In this episode, Amy spoke about how art can renew our sense of vision and approach to problem solving. This method proves that everyone sees and interprets things differently, which shows that we need to become better communicators to solve our problems. She stressed that effective communication has a renewed significance now because we are communicating with our stakeholders in a virtual environment. For leaders of organizations, the most difficult thing for them to do is rethink their communication skills and make them as effective as they were before, which involves agility. Amy also spoke about confirmation bias – wherein people only hear what they want to hear – and how to realize that we are trapped in this way of looking at information. Building on the conversation, Amy spoke about well-known artists who reflect characteristics that a great leader can impersonate. Amy E. Herman is the founder and president of The Art of Perception, Inc., a New York-based organization that conducts professional development courses to leaders around the world, including at the FBI, CIA, Scotland Yard, and the Peace Corps. Herman was also the Director of Educational Development at Thirteen/WNET, the educational public television station serving New York and New Jersey, and the Head of Education at The Frick Collection for over ten years, where she oversaw all of the Collection's educational collaborations and community initiatives.  An art historian and attorney, Herman holds a BA in International Affairs from Lafayette College, a JD from the National Law Center at George Washington University, and an MA in Art History from Hunter College. She is a member of the New Jersey and Pennsylvania Bar Associations. Herman channeled her dual degrees in art and law to create the successful Art of Perception program, and now trains thousands of professionals from Secret Service agents to church fundraisers. Herman is a world-renowned speaker who frequently presents at national and international conventions. She has been featured on the CBS Evening News, the BBC, and in countless print publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The London Times, New York Daily News, Smithsonian Magazine, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Suzanne Joyal had great advice about working with students with disabilities, which really applies to working with all students. I loved hearing about her path to teaching through motherhood and how she advocated for the arts in schools. It was also inspiring to hear about her art practice and how she overcomes artist block. Suzanne has exhibited her fine art at ArtWorks Downtown, Youth in Arts, O'Hanlon Center for the Arts, Albany Center, the Mill Valley Library, and Thornton Thomasetti. A visual artist with extensive teaching experience, Suzanne holds a degree in Art History from Wellesley College and has worked as a fine art gallery curator and an appraiser of fine prints for Butterfield and Butterfield. Suzanne is the founder of Purple Crayon Art Studio, a popular San Francisco art studio for children and families. Having created and directed Purple Crayon for over a decade, Suzanne sold the business in 2007. Suzanne also founded Give A Jump Start that used art as a tool for microfinance with women and children in Zambia. Suzanne provides professional development workshops for educators in arts integration techniques and is the creator of the Walker Rezaian Creative HeARTS program, an early childhood replicable visual arts curriculum. At Youth in Arts Suzanne focuses on the model programs including the ARTS Bank. This summer, Suzanne began her study toward a Master of Arts in Arts Education with a focus on special populations from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, PA. The only program of its kind in the country, the program was founded by Lynn Horoschak, a pioneer in the field of arts education for special populations. For the students of Moore, and arts educators at Youth in Arts, “special populations” means anyone who does not thrive in the linear, neurotypical classroom. This could mean students experiencing disabilities, newcomer and english language learners, students experiencing the effect of trauma, or anyone with an IEP (Individual Education Plan).

This week we're exploring the neuroscience behind our relationship to beauty. Are we culturally conditioned to prefer certain landscapes, works of art, and types of buildings or are those preferences universal? Why do some people embrace nature while others are fearful? Is there a way to measure biophilic design's effect on neurodivergent individuals? We investigate all of those questions and more with our guest Dr. Anjan Chatterjee, a renowned professor of Neurology at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Chatterjee is at the forefront of a relatively new field called neuroaesthetics which examines the neural basis of aesthetic experiences. In other words, why do we deem certain things beautiful or pleasurable over others? Particularly with nature and biophilia, the answer may not be as clear-cut as you think. Show NotesAnjan Chatterjee, M.D.NeuroaestheticsBiophilia as Evolutionary Adaptation: An Onto- and Phylogenetic Framework for Biophilic Design (Frontiers in Psychology)Biophilia by Edward O.

Today's guest has been a bit of a ghost int he GBH machine for more than a decade - since our founding really - and he's someone I think about every time someone asks me how GBH got started - and as you'll discover shortly, he had no idea.  Greg Browne was the brewer at a brewpub in Chicago's NW suburbs - a place called Mickey Finn's. He was known for brewing a hefeweizen - a recipe he inherited from his predecessor when he took over as head brewer.  More importantly, for me, he was the host of a weekly Beer School at The Map Room in Chicago - a midday gathering on Saturday's where guests would enjoy some bread and cheese and learn about beers in a thematic way - and the themes were whatever happened to be on Greg's mind that week.  It's an incredible memory for me - from a time when I'd only had a smattering of craft beer experiences to rely on - and I hardly considered myself a fan of beer in any particular way. It was just causal and sometimes interesting fun. Most of my bar experiencers a the time involved $1 off specials of Blue Moon and some Golden Tee. Not exactly sophisticated stuff - but it was kind of the Chicago way.  Map Room - and Greg Browne's beer school painted an entirely different picture however. And I'm forever indebted to that moment when he served me my first Saison Dupont. That's the beer that inspired GBH - and Greg is the one who created that moment, unbeknownst to him.  But that's not the real reason we're talking today - that's a story we could have shared at any point in in past decade really. Today I'm talking to Greg because for the first time in a long time, I saw his name pop up as part of a new brewing project called Art History, and it recently started supplying two fantastic beers to Chicago's Hopleaf Bar. As far as I know the sis the first time Hopleaf has ever had a house beer. The venerated tap list there is a target for anyone trying to make a name for themselves in Chicago's beer scene. Brewers host parties just to celebrate getting on tao there for the first time if they're lucky enough to make the list at all. So for Greg to have a new gig - and so quickly become a mainstay on that list as a pair of house beers - is an unprecedented achievement.  And for this episode, I reached out to Michael Roper of Hopleaf for his perspective on all that.  It was a sign for me that it was finally time to get Greg on the podcast, share this story with him, and hear so much more about his own. It takes us deep into Chicago's craft brewing past - and paints pa picture of the future that I'm very excited about.

In this episode 289, we visit with Jennifer Dasal, author of “Art Curious: Stories of the Unexpected, Slightly Odd, and Strangely Wonderful in Art History.” ArtCurious is a colorful look at the world of art history, revealing some of the strangest, funniest, and most fascinating stories behind the world's great artists and masterpieces. We're all familiar with the works of Claude Monet, thanks in no small part to the ubiquitous reproductions of his water lilies on umbrellas, handbags, scarves, and dorm-room posters. But did you also know that Monet and his cohort were trailblazing rebels whose works were originally deemed unbelievably ugly and vulgar? And while you probably know the tale of Vincent van Gogh's suicide, you may not be aware that there's pretty compelling evidence that the artist didn't die by his own hand but was accidentally killed--or even murdered. Or how about the fact that one of Andy Warhol's most enduring legacies involves Caroline Kennedy's moldy birthday cake and a collection of toenail clippings? Publishers Weekly says in its Starred Review, “Dasal reveals in this entertaining survey the weird, wacky, and unbelievable backstories of some of the world's greatest artists and most famous works of art. . . . Both art aficionados and novices will find something to appreciate in this offbeat and informative outing.” Engage with the show here: https://linktr.ee/CharlotteReadersPodcast Detailed show notes here: https://charlottereaderspodcast.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/charlottereaderspodcast Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/charlottereaderspodcast/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/charlottereader Charlotte Readers Podcast is a proud member of the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network and the Queen City Podcast Network. #CharlotteReadersPodcast #podcast #literary #literature #instabooks #goodreads #bookstagram #booklover #amreading #bookreview #bookaddict #bookclub #bookobsessed #booknerd #bookaholic #booklife #bookworm #bookgram #booktography #bookblogger #totalbooknerd #bookishfeatures #creativenonfiction #tellyourstory #podcaster #exploreclt #cltagenda #charlotteagenda #704 #cltiscreative #authorsontheair #queencitypodcastnetwork © Charlotte Readers Podcast and Authors on the Air Global Radio Network

Episode 140: Modern Art and Architecture in Morocco in the Aftershock of the 1960 Agadir Earthquake On February 29, 1960, an earthquake leveled much of the southern Moroccan coastal city of Agadir. Over the next decade, a new Agadir would be built in an avant-garde brutalist architectural style, representing a concrete example of Morocco's newly independent future. And yet, this future is haunted by the trauma and violence of the past, by way of both the earthquake as well as colonialism. The literal and figurative aftershocks of the earthquake would go on to impact, in ways that are often obscured, various facets of life all around Morocco and beyond, especially with regards to visual and material culture. This raises the questions about the entanglements of human actors with non-human forces when it comes to histories of modernism, decolonization, and nation-building.   Riad Kherdeen studies global modern art and architecture, with a focus on the region of West Asia/Middle East and North Africa (MENA). He is working on a doctoral dissertation project on modernist art and architecture in Morocco related to the Agadir earthquake of 1960 titled “Spectral Modernisms: Decolonial Aesthetics and Haunting in the Aftershock of Morocco's Agadir Earthquake (1960)." His interests fall within three main clusters of study: the first is in comparative and planetary modernisms via postcolonial studies and critical theory; the second is in the study of perception, including aesthetics, phenomenology, psychoanalytic theory, cognitive psychology, and neuroscience; and the third is in materialisms, ranging from the micro scale with technical studies of visual and material cultural production, including techniques, processes, technologies, and materials/conservation science, to the macro scale including Marxist/historical materialism, new materialism, ecocriticism, and systems theory. Riad holds a B.A. in Art History and a minor in Chemistry from New York University (2013) and an M.A. in the History of Art and Archaeology from the Institute of Fine Arts (2016). His M.A. thesis “Masdar City: Oriental City of the Twenty-First Century,” advised by Jean-Louis Cohen, looks at the urban design and architecture of Masdar City in the United Arab Emirates as a new iteration of the “Orientalized” city within a genealogy of recent urbanism in the Arab world, one that still succumbs to the imagined representations of the region created by European imperialism yet embraces those stereotypes to construct new narratives about its people and its nascent nation. Previously, Riad has held positions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Art Genome Project at Artsy.   This episode was recorded on November 19th, 2021 at the Tangier American Legation Institute for Moroccan Studies (TALIM).    Posted by Hayet Lansari, Librarian, Outreach Coordinator, Content Curator (CEMA).

With this book, Emmelyn Butterfield-Rosen brings a new formal and conceptual rubric to the study of turn-of-the-century modernism, transforming our understanding of the era's canonical works. Butterfield-Rosen analyzes a hitherto unexamined formal phenomenon in European art: how artists departed from conventions for posing the human figure that had long been standard. In the decades around 1900, artists working in different countries and across different media began to present human figures in strictly frontal, lateral, and dorsal postures. The effect, both archaic and modern, broke with the centuries-old tradition of rendering bodies in torsion, with poses designed to simulate the human being's physical volume and capacity for autonomous thought and movement. This formal departure destabilized prevailing visual codes for signifying the existence of the inner life of the human subject. Exploring major works by Georges Seurat, Gustav Klimt, and the dancer and choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky— replete with new archival discoveries—Modern Art and the Remaking of Human Disposition (U Chicago Press, 2021) combines intensive formal analysis with inquiries into the history of psychology and evolutionary biology. In doing so, it shows how modern understandings of human consciousness and the relation of mind to body were materialized in art through a new vocabulary of postures and poses. Allison Leigh is Assistant Professor of Art History and the SLEMCO/LEQSF Regents Endowed Professor in Art & Architecture at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Her research explores masculinity in European and Russian art of the eighteenth through the early twentieth centuries. Learn more about your ad choices.

In Media Primitivism: Technological Art in Africa (Duke University Press, 2020) Delinda Collier provides a sweeping new understanding of technological media in African art, rethinking the assumptions that have conceptualized African art as unmediated, primary, and natural. Collier responds to these preoccupations by exploring African artworks that challenge these narratives. From one of the first works of electronic music, Halim El-Dabh's Ta'abir Al-Zaar (1944), and Souleymane Cissé's 1987 film, Yeelen, to contemporary digital art, Collier argues that African media must be understood in relation to other modes of transfer and transmutation that have significant colonial and postcolonial histories, such as extractive mining and electricity. Collier reorients modern African art within a larger constellation of philosophies of aesthetics and technology, demonstrating how pivotal artworks transcend the distinctions between the constructed and the elemental, thereby expanding ideas about mediation and about what African art can do.

That same year, she landed a TV role, transferred to the drama school Cours Florent and launched an acting career. In 1989, Anna began living between New York City and Paris. While in New York, she attended the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, raised two beautiful daughters, collaborated with numerous artists, wrote and directed four short films and three feature films, and published her first book, "AH Allen," a powerful tribute to her friend, poet Allen Ginsberg. In 2013, Anna rekindled a fascination with photography choosing flowers as the ultimate muse. The medium and the models became a creative outlet in solitude, counterbalancing her filmmaking's collaborative spirit. Learn more on Instagram: @anna.condo.
