The Creativity Podcast
S01E01 - Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire)
Stephen Mallinder is a musician best known for his work as part of Cabaret Voltaire, but has also worked extensively in many other fields, has had work exhibited at the Tate Modern and at MoMA, and is also a writer and an academic. The audio quality on this one wasn't the best, unfortunately, but we go into a lot of interesting stuff around authenticity, why people in are motivated to create, how that is facilitated by societies and cultures, and a few fun little rabbit holes besides. As we're both academics, that helped to define the direction the conversation went in, which made this one a really fascinating discussion about some of the more theoretical ideas surrounding art and culture.
