Prof. Maggie Morse on Artists on Art for October 20, 2009

maggiemorseThis show was very special and a thrill to interview the fabulous Maggie Morse.  Back in December of 2006, she’s the person that encouraged me to apply to DANM and get to where I am today.  I would most likely not have a radio show. That’s for sure.

Margaret Morse is a Professor of Film and Digital Media at UCSC and For the last year and a half, Maggie has been Director of the University of California Education Abroad Study Center in Germany 2008-10. She is in town for the ART of COLLABORATION Symposium taking place this Thursday and Friday (October 22 & 23) at the Digital Arts Research Center. She is co-convening with B. Ruby Rich in creating this event. Also, this is the DARC inaugural event.

Prof. Morse is currently researching collaboration in art discourse and practice and exploring cultural changes in Eastern Europe 1989-2009. Her current writing projects include a monograph on Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will and a book on “Art and the Other Senses”.

We had a lot to talk about and as usual not enough time. We went through the entire event’s program. To hear the live broadcast please click here.
