Welcome to part two of this two-part episode where James Marcus Tucker and Bradley Tuck discuss “Individualism, Freedom and Artistic Exploration.” This two-part episode is part of a larger four-part series tentatively entitled “towards a new manifesto”. Where in part 1 we discussed the philosophy and politics of individualism and freedom, on today’s show we will look at the politics of individualism and freedom and they are expressed in art. We will discuss counter-culture from the 17th Century Ranters to psychedelia and Punk, the politics of snowflakes, the films of John Waters, Reiner Werner Fassbinder, Jean-Luc Godard, Andrei Tarkovsky, Jafar Panahi, Samira Makhmalbaf, and David Lynch, and the importance of saying “Fuck off”.
You will hear a brief intermission in which Bradley Tuck discusses the Composer Carl Stalling’s Looney Tunes music and its relationship to the musician John Zorn.
