Episode 08 - "PODCAST"

Episode 08

"Benjamin"! "Barthes"! "Derrida"!
What do dead philosophers have to do with the work of Virgil Abloh? Find out in the latest episode of my podcast, wherein I discuss Abloh's claim of the post-post-modern and consider whether his "quote" marks are truly a lifetime of thinking, or simply a signature gimmick. In this episode I seek to frame Abloh as one of the quintessential millennial designers, given relevance by and existing because of social media and the Internet. I explore ideas of modernity, semiotics, meaning, cognitive self-awareness, and why I think that Abloh would be better served by never actually talking about his work. 

Hope you enjoy the episode, and please do make sure to give it a share!
