Section One

  • Main

    Riposte Issue 1

We kicked off the pod talking about Riposte a self-styled “smart magazine for women” and then looked at adam&eveDBB’s subversion of the Christmas spirit for the new Harvey Nichols campaign. We wondered whether it was ever necessary to kill of cartoon characters after the demise of _Family Guy’s Brian Griffin and finally we reflected on Seth Rogen and James Franco’s Kimye parody.

Section Two

    The 3D printed gun featured in MOMA’s new online exhibition

We began the second section by looking at MOMA’s interesting new online exhibition exploring the links between design and violence and wondered just how far they would push it in light of Justin McGuirk’s article on Dezeen.

  • Royal_national_theatre_london_southbankcentre02

    The South bank Centre

We then talked about the proposed redevelopment of London’s South Bank after artist Anthony Gormley’s provocative call for developers to either respect what is there at the moment. or tear down then cultural quarter and start again.
