CIRCUIT CAST Episode 2: On Criticism, The Destroyed World, Asia Pacific Triennial

Installation Shot: The Destroyed Word by Santiago Sierra

CRITICS & CRITICISM: This month Mark Amery & guests address the vexed issue of Criticism in New Zealand and Australia. Has the proliferation of new art forms made it difficult to critique art? How do we develop bold young critical voices? Should we fight for space in the shrinking profit margins of the newspaper? Should we simply pitch our tent in a friendly corner of the internet? 

Discussing this & more: Auckland writer Anthony Byrt; outgoing editor of Art Asia Pacific Olivier Krischer, and Auckland-based curator Andrew Clifford. We also review Santiago Sierra's The Destroyed Word at Te Tuhi, Auckland, and reflect on 20 years of the Asia Pacific Triennial, Brisbane. 

Produced by CIRCUIT with assistance from Massey University School of Fine Arts, Wellington. Music by Orchestra of Spheres.
