The #TASCHENPodcast on the imposing architecture of North Korea; Bruce Talamon’s photos of 1970s Funk, Soul and R&B; and Christo’s London Mastaba
Imaginative freedom and authoritarian clout come head to head in this episode as we journey through the imposing architecture of North Korea; the heyday of Funk, Soul, and RnB; and Christo’s latest grand-scale happening in London’s Hyde Park.
First up, Guardian critic Oliver Wainwright discusses his fascinating journey to Pyongyang and the outlandish constructions of the Kim regime. Next, Bruce Talamon takes us back to a heyday in black music, sharing anecdotes —and photography tips — from his time capturing the likes of Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and The Jackson Five, not to mention Thanksgiving Dinner with Marvin Gaye. Finally, our friend Christo calls in to discuss his latest project, the London Mastaba in Hyde Park, and his and Jeanne-Claude’s long-standing fascination with barrels as a creative material.
