This weekâ€™s show is top notch, grade A stuff, Jack, and you sure donâ€™t want to miss it. Art, religion, smurfs, Dungeons and Dragons, Duncan rattling on like an old man about how kids today just donâ€™t understand punk rock, AND the show closes with Richardâ€™s favorite music cue in the entire run of the program, a little pop diddy on Marx and Mao. A show with something for everyone.
Duncan and Terri talk to James Elkins and David Morgan about the forthcoming roundtableâ€¦
On April 17, SAIC professor and critic James Elkins reignites the discussion with the
provocative Re-Enchantment Roundtable. The roundtable and associated events gather
together secular and religious thinkers who rarely share discourse: artists, scholars and
art criticsâ€”and religionists interested in art. Panelists will include Thierry de Duve,
Gregg Bordowitz, David Morgan, Kajri Jain, Tomoko Masuzawa, and Wendy Doniger.
The day long discussion is intended to span the full diversity of opinions, from those
who think contemporary art is already â€œreligious,â€ to those who believe art should have
nothing to do with religious faith.
Duncan and Edmar discuss the Lumpen Juggernautâ€™s new building project and HQ, the Version festival, art madness on the river and Half-Elves that are chaotic good.
