For this week’s Page Breaks, we’re listening to an episode of ‘A Piece of Work’, a podcast about modern art based out of MOMA. This episode ‘The Writing on the Wall’ asks questions about how to achieve ‘authenticity’ in inherently reproducible pieces, and if words/language can be art.
“Words. They might be the most versatile art material out there.” (Abbi Jacobson, ‘The Writing on the Wall’)

- If you’d like, we’d be delighted if this discussion opens out into a broader discussion of pieces of art we love, and the questions those pieces raise for us – feel free to come along with images to share!
