Recently I’ve found some time to come back and listen to some beloved records that I haven’t checked out in a long time. Once I stumbled upon The Velvet Underground’s discography I realised that, for unknown reasons, I’ve never really listened closely to „White Light/White Heat”, so I decided to jump right into this record and finally give it a close listen. Once I finished this album at like 1 am, I literally couldn’t sleep for the whole night.

Wow, ... read more

hey, I just wanted to ask where can I find "Un Monde Lacéré" by Pierre Henry or if there even is a digital version.

Where do you find L’œuvre électronique by Luc Ferrari? Quite intrigued about the work.

Not sure where it was, but I think I saw you mention Sienicki somewhere else before, so I looked him up and I find his material absolutely wonderful! When it comes to installation art, I'm a bit clueless, though, so I find it a bit more difficult to really appreciate Kantor's work, even if I can definitely see the attraction.

I will say that I think it's a massive shame that paintings have become so incredibly commodified. The value has shifted from "art for art's sake" to money quite drastically. Us normal people who get exploited by capitalists on the daily can only dream of ever owning a Rothko or a Pollock. We'll get to see some at a museum... if we're lucky. Literature and music are really the only art forms that have so far been able to escape from the capitalist machine, although I'm not certain how much longer artistically progressive music can survive in the current climate.

A younger painter who I believe is doing a lot of exciting work is Rinus Van de Velde. He crafts these very hard to pin down painting with pretty much nothing but black paint on white canvas - I'm not even sure how he goes about it.

Thank you! I'd found that blogspot page myself, but for whatever reason they weren't downloading before. They are now, though.

As for painters I love, I'm a bit of a slut for abstract expressionism, but I'm sure you know those big names already (Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Fernando Zóbel, Franz Kline, Barnett Newman, Vasudeo Gaitonde...). I also love Fairfield Porter and Richard Diebenkorn, but I wouldn't necessarily label all their work as "abstract". More unique picks would probably be either old masters - which Belgium and the Netherlands largely provided - like Rubens (my favourite), Vermeer and Rembrandt, but I'm sure you at least know of them too. Finally, ones you most likely don't know are more contemporary Belgians, like Raveel, who's definitely my underappreciated favourite of the lot, but people like Luc Tuymans and Michaël Borremans have also been able to carve out a huge career.
