Pernilla & The Celebrity-Industrial Complex

For a podcast of my conversation with Pernilla, click here.

In the culture pages of Fokus, I write about Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck’s I’m Still Here as a commentary on the Celebrity-Industrial Complex (I nicked the term from Maureen Orth).

Yesterday’s episode of P3 Kultur touches on the topic too; to understand the Phoenix “hoax” we revisit the JT LeRoy affair. The show includes interviews with major players including Samantha Knoop (who portrayed JT) and Laura Albert (who was the actual author).

My monthly Fokus column is on what it really means to understand that ancient Greek marble sculpture was always painted.
