Bridget Kendall is joined by Ghanaian anti-counterfeiting entrepreneur Bright Simons; art auctioneer and author of Breakfast at Sotheby’s – An A-Z of the Art World Philip Hook; and art historian Winnie Wong whose new book Van Gogh on Demand takes us on a trip to China, to a village where every year millions of copies of well-known oil paintings are churned out to be distributed for sale in around the world.

La diversité culturelle à l’épreuve d’internet (4/4) - E-diasporas: d‘autres communautés transnationales
durée : 00:51:22 - CULTURES MONDE - par : Florian Delorme - Sentinelles, veilleurs… plus libres mais toujours attentifs à ce qui se passe politiquement et culturellement dans leur pays d’origine. Avec le numérique, le migrant change de dimension. Il n’est plus déraciné mais doublement présent. Internet est plus qu’un outil de communication pour les diasporas. Internet recompose de nouveaux rapports identitaires et culturels. - réalisé par : Doria Zénine
Episode 19 – Changing with Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske!
by Chris Thompson
With Ales Kot & Morgan Jeske …
a bit late this time around, but it’s not entirely hopeless as Taylor and I take a deeper look at Dennis Hopeless’ two contributions to Marvel Now! Avengers Arena #1 and Cable & X-Force #1.
Taylor also chats with Ales Kot (Wild Children) and Morgan Jeske (Disappearing Town) about working together on their new mini-series Change from Image Comics. Plus we continue to enjoy our BrewDog Craft Beers with the rather potent Dogma.
