The second conversation

Conversations: 1 / 2 / 3

The second episode of Conversations in Modernism brought two very creative and witty souls together: street photographer Matt Stuart and Mercury Award nominated musician Ghostpoet. It turned out that these two had a lot in common as they chatted about unconventional paths into their respective careers, documenting the modern world around them, the importance of editing and a whole lot more.

One of the things we love about modernism is that it means a lot of things to a lot of different people. For some, it refers to specific movements within arts and culture, whilst for others it’s simply about breaking tradition.

Through the bringing together three pairs of creatives at the top of their respective fields, this debate has been brought to life: What does modernism mean to you?


When it came to it, our Conversations in Modernism ended up exploring a lot more than they set out to. Our Modernists delved into subjects such as what it means to be creative in a modern world, questioned how craftsmanship can survive the digital revolution, and whether it’s possible to push things forward whilst still paying respect to the past.

Carefully curated in order to generate vibrant discussion, each conversation has been summarised in a short film and, for those who like to dig a little deeper, an in-depth editorial feature.
