Season 4 of Momus: The Podcast invites art critics and journalists to talk about an important piece of their writing – texts that carry stories, that ran in prestigious publications to great acclaim, or that were killed under tense circumstances. Every two weeks, co-hosts Sky Goodden and Lauren Wetmore will ask a different writer to read their text to us, and then discuss how it came into being – its inspiration, construction, and impact.
To launch the season, Goodden interviews her co-host Wetmore about a piece that was published in Momus and was shortlisted for a 2016 International Award for Art Criticism, a sharp and farcical review of Manifesta 11: What Artist and Curators Do for Money, which demonstrates a rare example of curatorial criticism.
Lauren Wetmore is co-host and co-producer of Momus: The Podcast and a curatorial fellow at Mudam, Luxembourg.
Momus: The Podcast is edited by Jacob Irish, with assistant production from Mitra Shreeram, and this season’s music written by Ulysses Castellanos. Thanks to our small team and our listeners. Please visit our Patreon account for ways to support to publication and podcast.
