Ep 23 — Stefan Boulter on Icelandic Painting, its Corrupt Culture Politics, and Jung’s Concept of the Shadow | The Cave of Apelles

Stefan Boulter is an Icelandic painter. He touches on Jung’s shadow concept, how cancel-culture can affect what we create, and the base nepotism of culture politics.

As a teacher, he shares his experience with what young students typically are concerned with today: what tendencies are visible in their works?

Further, he addresses how great things can be made in a country where… «all our old masters are modern».

The centerpiece for this conversation was “Sliding into Darkness” (2015) by Stefan Boulter.
The episode was hosted by Jan-Ove Tuv and produced by Bork S. Nerdrum — with assistance from Sebastian Salvo and Cassander Straumsgaard.
