The year may be drawing to a close but Studio Audience is showing no signs of letting up. We’re still here, hammering out weekly art and design chat whether you like it or not. So submit to this reality, download this week’s offering and enjoy what could be described as a podcast of two halves as we show off both our silly and our serious side.

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.

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.


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.
