    Thanks guys ‘The Video PhD’ is great work as always. I’m eager to see the outcome of this. I get the impression that the completion of the PhD is of secondary importance to Kate since early on she says that the work may end up being a few KIRAC videos, and later the deal is sealed once Mathieu indicates his willingness to fail.

    Beyond the more subtle cues, however, it’s clear that there is a religious difference between what you may call the liberated KIRAC and the subservient Mathieu. From the very start we see Mathieu has a tendency to try to qualify everything. The use of the camera is ok because he realizes there is a precident of students using audio. Instead of pondering the image of the guitars on the chairs he must first determine if it is art; if it is worth pondering. With respect to the importance of an artist’s moral purity, he doesn’t dare bridge the gap into drawing his own conclusion; he is happy to wait patiently for someone else to explore this question methodologically and write a paper on it, thus placing it under the scientific canon and qualifying the result as True.

    In the video of his lecture the joke he makes indicates the futility of an overly restricted method which often serves merely to qualify. I find this joke beyond ironic. Freudian slip? Perhaps this is his critique of hypothesis based PhDs in contrast to design based? He seems to want some such framework to be able to interpret any art experience and extract a useful output.

    Methodology becomes a mediator for him that shifts trust in his own in interpretive faculties to trust in methodology, an abstraction. This eventually leaves one’s interpretive faculties underused, rigid, and weak, but unfortunately gaining knowledge always requires interpretation. The truth seeker must take responsibility for the strength of their interprative faculties. They cannot be replaced by methodology, and overreliance on methodology will weaken them. In this sense this type of phd (are there other types?) creates mostly engagement between methodology and subject instead of engagement between agent and subject. Jeff Koons vs Van Gogh.

    Upon adopting responisibility the agent implicitly accepts that they are already applying and slowly refining their own highly unique and indefinite methodology, immediately making any generalized methodology obsolete. You can’t logically engineer a way to engage with art, you can only observe how you tend to engage with it and experiment while you observe (science lol).

    It seems painfully obvious, and moreso as the video progresses, that there’s a religious difference here which inhibits a collaboration with Mathieu as an agent. He is, rather, a subject that is in the process of potentially becoming an agent through the application of arcane KIRACian science. Maybe this is all obvious and the exact point of the video? Or maybe I am missing something? Would love to hear anyone’s thoughts. My apologies for the length.

      Thanks for interesting responce. Maybe its better to go into this on film, more precise. I think well do that. But it has to do with Mathieu desire to be fan of stuff (he talkes about that in the conversation). He was impressed by kirac and maybe specifically Kate, and wanted to help and become part of the story with what he had to offer: a PhD, a way of gliding into academia, maybe even an academic position for Kate, and also his access to well payed advice boards in cultural institutions. Basicly the game of making kirac culturally legit and then reaping the fruits of that, using it as a trojan horse, or just becoming rich and decadent and have to opportunity to portray how that is. There is a very cunning, playful side to Mathieu who wants to become part of a game, and in this game its not always clear whos on top and these things might shift. Both this cunning side, and the side that wants be fan, worship, is indeed sort of religious. I like that, as is it is irrational. I also give myself religiously to art. I think the whole kirac project, also for kate and me, is about becoming an agent for ‘something else’, which is the kirac project, a religious entity over which we have no individual control, as it absorbs all kinds of outside forces, kate herself already being an outside force to me, stefan. Was this too vague?

      • Z

        Vague in a poetic way, but I think I understand. Yes I was going to include some thoughts on his wanting to be a fan. I like your perspective… different than mine but I think also true. Yes it is a game he wants to play I agree even if he is not fully aware of it. Perhaps I took his professionalism nearly as seriously as he does but obviously that desire to play and be titillated is just beneath that thin veneer, as it is for all of us. I fully support the institutional infiltration I think it will be challenging, funny, rewarding… And yes I see what you mean with KIRAC being a religious entity, some abstraction to serve just like Mathieu and his idea of science. I respect how dynamic you’ve kept the project… very little formula to the construction of each video but an obvious and coherent philosophical underpinning that need not be stated explicitly to work.

    A classmate introduced me when i was studying in bergen. The stefan simchowitz vid is one of the funniest things on youtube. I then started diving into the back catalogue, which is thankfully very deep! I really like your fresh take on doing art content, and i admire your bravado in dealing with institutions. Also, Kate is one of the most bright minds of art crit I have listened to. I have since introduced many of my art and architecture friends in Denmark to your videos. I am looking forward to watching the video podcast phd thing. Saving it to watch the friends. We did a whole cinema setup to watch the king phillip video, which we all found knee slappingly funny

  • Benjamin Merrick

    I really enjoyed the discussion in Podcast 1. You guys are the only people I have ever subscribed to on Patreon, and I think that’s because you’re the only YouTube channel I find genuinely thought-provoking. Other academic ideas are so concerned with narrowing art down to a science that I feel they miss the point altogether: “How Turner uses light”; “What Rafman says about the future” etc. I think the KIRAC method is hard work for the viewer as they are forced to actually think and situate themselves, whereas those other channels I mentioned are concerned with giving viewers concrete answers that simply impose a superstructure on a superstructure. Very boring. Kate fielded the questions so well. A lot of her points reminded me of my recent readings of Karl Ove Knausgaard, who tries to arrive at truth through his autofiction. Mathieu was continually trying to do his job and ground the discussion in the scientific method, but she did a great job of resisting being pulled in by those assumptions. The method as established by Francis Bacon (the other one, ha) has undeniably improved the world in terms of scientific advancement, life expectancy and technology. However, this scientific method that universities as institutions subscribe to has surely repressed more liberating kinds of dialogue along Nietzschean lines. I always think of Hegel as a snare which some supervisors can use to reduce the candidate’s work into something manageable and scientific. I’ve always hated Hegel for that reason, and never understood how thesis – antithesis – synthesis leads to this conception of ‘pure truth’ or ‘pure spirit’, as he puts it. It just catches things in a handy Netflixy net, the way that Stefan suggests that Nietzsche is always defined in terms of his relation to the canon – why can’t he stand alone? Why must our understanding of Nietzsche always be synthesised with understandings of Plato and Kant etc? Nietzsche’s ‘conception of science’ (though I dislike this wording) is much more liberating, and I hope you continue along these lines, as they seem to align with the anti-dogmatic nature of KIRAC itself. Good luck!

  • Floris

    Wat een genot om naar jullie te kijken in KIRAC Podcast #1. Ik vind het dapper en inspirerend hoe jullie een opening in stugge instituten proberen en weten te creëren. Als onderdeel van zo’n instituut (een universiteit) stemt me dat heel vrolijk en hoopvol.

    Ik wens jullie het beste en aanmoedigingen om integer te blijven hebben jullie niet nodig zo te horen.

    Fijne dag!

  • B.

    I appreciate and am excited by KIRAC. You’ve been influential in my life already albeit having subjected myself to your work only over the past two months. I’ve since shared your website to friends who are studying Philosophy, Art History, Psychology, Media, Painting, etc. Has been the source of many conversations already. And has given me a sharper critical awareness of that which is present in New Zealand (barely any art criticism exists here at the moment).

  • BaarnVictor

    Ademloos gekeken. Dit is echt goed.

  • genuine-girl-666

    these people are ultra cringe and additionally in a whole dif sphere of art due to their dreamy european public infrastructure. but yes it would hurt me to listen to which is something i enjoy so 👍

  • [Deleted]

    KIRAC is fire

  • DoYouYou

    Their arguments never hold water if you think about them more than a minute. But they are pretty good at scaring the liberal art bourgeoisie and riding the wave of controversy so I like them.

  • XtF7gT

    If you imagine Kate as an Amish girl just let out for rumspringa her retarded opion makes more sense and it’s easier to imagine yourself being there and being like “that’s fascinating. I’m going to cum in your mouth now.” and her being like “Ja, doch, but you must pull my hair”. [KIRAC 9, Who’s Afraid of Harvey Weinstein]

  • YellowKing

    Very, very, really very good new and fresh take on this whole issue, thanks. [KIRAC 9, Who’s Afraid of Harvey Weinstein]

    the way Moulai [KIRAC 14, Problem Child] so immediately and resolutely shakes his head when Kate suggests he “find a nice woman” pains me

  • abstitial

    I’m not very educated in art history but I think they speak quite intelligently – albeit irreverently and flippantly. Whether its for attention, fun, or intellectual stimulation, their bitter critiques feel alive. Even when I don’t agree I feel like they are giving us a lot. I think their art burnout personas resonate – it sucks to dedicate your life to something so generally vapid and detestable.

  • m_dot_holmes_dot

    First thoughts – the hosts are fairly aggressive, and like to state their opinions as fact. I think some points were interesting, but it’s hard to get to the good stuff, without the various personal attacks on the artists and curators they’re throwing out being a turn-off. It’s too bad they don’t want to present their takedowns in a more clinical – objective – way. They might reach more people – if that is their goal? I’ll probably watch a few more before I can say if these people are smart and ruthless or just aggressive and attention seeking.

  • [deleted]

    It’s not a coincidence they list the documentary ‘Weiner’ (about the eponymous politician/adulterer) as influential on their work. The idea is you find a charismatic, ambitious, energetic, but not-so-likeable person and you follow them for a while in a fly-on the wall manner. KIRAC recognized that person in Simchowitz. I’m ambiguous about the project but that episode is a masterpiece. It’s a perfect microcosmic view of the cynical, manipulative art world.

    Since KIRAC insists on their documentaries being art, they’re supposed to be judged as art, not as art journalism. The default position in contemporary art, this is a license to do iniquitous things while discrediting any critique as narrow-minded.

    They’re very intelligent people but also rather arrogant and complacent. They could be the most influential art educators of their generation, but the 10 month gap between the last and next episodes show they don’t give a shit about momentum or building an audience. I hope this means they need the time to make the best docs they can.

  • OrnitoIogy

    KIRAC is hard to watch at times, but I love it.

  • Stressed_Member

    Maybe the best thing that has come out of the Dutch art scene recently is KIRAC (keeping it real art critics)

    Especially (KIRAC 16 ‘King Philip and the Pied Flycatcher’) makes me nauseous.

    Where they show that the dutch art world is mostly being run by ultra boring rich boomers, and many art seems to cater to these boring people, because that is where the money is.

  • gwaar

    I have conflicting thoughts about them. There’s always some pretty insightful moments within them – Kate’s exegeses, Stefan’s trickster moments – but then there’s also some barely articulated politics that seem reactionary. I mostly give it a pass because they’re in a different cultural context, and anyway the videos seem to be about getting a rise out of people using a dangerously refined language.

    I’m always sort of put off balance by them more than I disagree with them – there’s parts of the films where fiction and reportage get mixed, there’s funky pacing, etc. I’m never quite sure where I stand in relation to the video, because I’m never quite sure exactly what the video is. And I can’t quite work out what part of that is deliberate and what is caused by translation issues and lack of context. Part of me thinks it’s a rhetorical strategy on their part to bolster their egos, but part of me thinks that’s too cynical. It’s like, not at all surprising that their website lists Nietszche as a big influence.

  • Ignacio Lanzallo

    Although it is necessary and good to see a “mockumentary” series that confronts the official aesthetics and the consensus in the art establishment, I find a problem with Kirac in how they like to confirm some of the delusions of the cultural bourgeoisie and art establishment. Mainly, Kirac’s spokespersons reinforce the official illusion that either you can be “woke” and with the consensus of the liberal-authoritarian establishment, or “alt-right”. This idea narrows the discussion down, and limits itself to clownish provocation of the “articulately spoken” bourgeoisie and its curators. I think KIRAC should, and would do well to invite an ideologue who is truly to the political Left, and also adversarial to the postmodern progressive art that predominates, to debate the other critics.
    (It seems my previous comment was lost or not published. Maybe because of how the page was loading)

  • Iggy Lanzallo

    I would like to see an episode in which the KIRAC allows an intellectual, critic or writer
    who truly is “of the Left” ideologically, to enter into the polemic and debate Tarek, Stefan and co. Thus far, the mockumentary chapter by chapter seems to keep asserting that these aristocratic activists and expats you confront in the Netherlands– politically correct figureheads like Esche, and the academic hacks who frequent kunsthal addresses like the W139 and the Piet Zwart institute are actually “the Left” whereas one could also argue them to be deeply anti-political, escapist, or post-political, behind the militant posturing. I doubt that socialist cultural critics like Frederick Jameson, Terry Eagleton, or the late Tony Judt would in any manner take kindly either to that representation of the Left, or to the current state of contemporary art and its authoritarian liberal/progressive politics. The episodes also thus far fall short of exposing just how the contemporary art industry, imitative of New York, actually constricts and filters the artistic expression of artists from the “non-West” like Latin America and Middle East, by always expecting certain kinds of political art from these regions. Of course, such an episode might dissatisfy or confuse the people of the Telegraaf and Geenstijl, who perhaps should already be confused.

  • Stefan

    Waarom moet ik steeds iets zien van Wout Neutkens in de rubriek Space bijvoorbeeld? Sponseren jullie hem of zo?

  • Tjappie Konjo

    Ook al is het maar een klein onderdeel van Kirac 16 vond ik de verwerking over midden-oosten conflict en de Koerden in het bijzonder, erg boeiend! Bij de recente inval van Turkije in Syrië was ik op zoek naar goede geopolitieke duiding in de media maar kon deze nergens vinden. Deze film heeft wat dat betreft mij al meer inzicht gegeven dan alle media tot nu toe :p.

    Daarbovenop krijg ik als kijker en kunstleek een soort les in esthetica maar die door het verhalende van de film wel heel boeiend blijft. Ook genieten van een heerlijk inkijkje in zo’n sponsorgezelschap .Bijna jaloersmakende psychoanalytische denkvermogen van Kate en hoe ze de dingen helder kan uitleggen.

    En als je bedenkt dat eerste beelden met Charles Esche uit 2017 komen heb ik respect voor het werk wat in de film zit. Het vertrouwen dat je tijdens het maakproces moet hebben… ik vind het bewonderenswaardig en zou zelf waarschijnlijk helemaal stuk gaan van onzekerheid haha.

    Tarik ook heel sterk in zijn rol als nar en onruststoker maar wel een vrije geest. Dus al met al petje af en waar mag ik doneren?! Ik kijk uit naar de volgende video’s!

  • Teun

    Eindelijk KIRAC 16. Een van de weinige kunstinitiatieven die daadwerkelijk kritisch is, is weer terug. Dank jullie wel.
    “Hij wil niet alleen mij naar die fabriek sturen, hij wil ook zelf naar die fabriek, zodat we daar samen kunnen zitten.” Dat is zo’n beetje wat elke communist beweert.
    Dan later tijdens de discussie:
    Esche zegt iets in de trant van: ‘Toen ik hier kwam vond ik dat de Nederlandse maatschappij te vreedzaam en zelfvoldaan was, dus vond ik dat het de taak was van het museum om te provoceren en onrust te stoken. Nu er zoveel polarisatie en onrust is, vind ik dat het de taak van het museum is om genezing te bewerkstelligen en mensen samen te brengen.’
    Dus Esche vindt dat het de taak van het museum is om de Nederlandse samenleving te ontwrichten en daarna weer te genezen. Hoe vaak wil hij dat doen? Kan het museum zich niet beter concentreren op het succesvol selecteren en presenteren van de beste kunst die ze kunnen krijgen? Hoe denkt hij überhaupt de gewenste ontwrichting en herstelling voor elkaar te krijgen met het museum? En waarom zou het aan hem zijn om te bepalen dat Nederland polarisatie of juist depolarisatie nodig heeft? Als het aan hem zou liggen ligt er een eindeloze cyclus van ontwrichting en herhechting in het verschiet van dit land, die hij dan mag gaan leiden. Een cyclus waar het museum eerst de brand sticht en dan met de splinternieuwe plotseling ontwikkelde blustechnieken op de proppen komt. Knettergek.

    I remember watching their jon rafman and rem koolhaas videos. I’m subbed to their youtube account but just realized its been 7 months since a post.

  • Bryan Wheeler

    I just watched Ep. 2 and found your targets much more sympathetic than you. Yes, their idea was horrible, but as artists we should understand that growth comes through the process. It’s possible that they would have arrived at an even more nuanced and interesting awareness had they gone through the project without the preemptive criticism. Maybe not, but then we could have just said they made shit. This is like “Minority Report” for art. Y’all are smart, quick, well-spoken, and I’m hoping there’s growth through the remaining episodes…maybe some basic humanity.

  • Niek Beenen

    Ik heb heel weinig met abstracte moderne kunst of hoe je dit ook mag classificeren. Alleen KIRAC vind ik fascinerend om naar te kijken op één of andere manier. Het einde van Episode 15 is dan ook een symboliek aangedragen door de kosmos met een hoger doel.

  • Bart B.

    Ik vind het lastig onder woorden te brengen hoe blij ik werd na het zien van KIRAC 13. Het is niet enkel de boodschap die gebracht wordt, of de manier waarop, waarvan ik onder de indruk ben. Ik denk ook dat dit een van de eerste keren is dat ik mensen uit “de kunstwereld” dit geluid hoor maken. Dit komt vooral omwille van het feit dat de SJW-cultuur bijna nooit in debat wilt treden over hun mening en/of reden tot annuleren van een spreker omdat deze door een paar mensen als bestempeld worden. Poog je daarnaast op redelijke wijze een gesprek aan te gaan, gaat dit gewoonweg niet omdat ze daar niet open voor staan. Dus ook respect voor de Rietveld academie mensen die uiteindelijk wel het debat aangingen. Hopelijk helpt het hen in de toekomst een wijzer besluit te maken als er een groep leerlingen eist voor een boycot van een spreker, op basis van valse beschuldigingen. Het is niet KIRAC die vermeden had moeten worden; maar de groep die het boycot opeiste, daar zou die school eens een gesprek mee moeten voeren. Ik ben namelijk toch echt van mening dat die groep gekwetsten, die vaak hun eigen leven nog maar net half half op de rails kunnen houden, de boel flink aan het verzieken is. Hoe moeten mensen met zo’n kortzichtige mening, iedere vorm van discussie vermijdend, ooit goed kunnen functioneren in de maatschappij? Als academies als de Rietveld dit gedrag blijft belonen door boycots (etc.) toe te kennen en studenten die mensen vals beschuldigen, serieus blijft nemen, hoop ik dat ze inzien hoe zeer zij zelf niet enkel een deel-, maar gewoon de bron van de problematiek zijn.

    KIRAC, dank voor dit werk! Respect voor jullie houding en mening! All the best for the future!

    Ik heb in de afgelopen twee dagen alle afleveringen en andere video’s op jullie website bekeken en vind het geweldig goed. Het is een potente mix van ‘inhoud’ die vergelijkbaar is met Hard Talk van de BBC – zeer eloquent met de vinger op de zere plek…ik heb bijvoorbeeld enorm genoten van de scherpte in de episode over “De werken van Renzo Martens” – en ‘stijl’ die vergelijkbaar is met de intensiteit en ‘edginess’ van Hunter S. Thompson…Tarik bijvoorbeeld in de episode “The Tears of Mara McCarthy” is weergaloos.

  • Maarttttt

    Blij dat KIRAC bestaat. De collage van confronterende tactieken (soms pesterijen), intellectualisme (soms drogredenen) maken spannende en stimulerende tv. Voelt voor mij aan als een soort reactionair postmodernisme. Iedereen die ik erover spreek heeft een andere mening. Heel scherp. Ik denk dat de invloed van KIRAC ook meer is dan simpelweg trollen, maar een frisse wind door de ingedutte kunstwereld.

  • Emile A.

    Ik vind dit kanaal echt fantastisch. Continue vraag ik mij af of we hier nou met satire, opinie of juist allebei te maken hebben. Ook de verfrissende inzichten die geboden worden (Weinstein verhaal) of het wederhoor met vriendje Kreuk zijn informatief en vermakelijk. In de continue zoektocht óf kunst teleursteld óf verrijkt wil ik graag een suggestie doen voor een nieuwe gast: Geert Jan Jansen waarbij zijn boek “Magenta” ook een aanrader is om te behandelen.

    KIRAC 8 is excellent. So much to unpack. It deserved a re-viewing. I am sympathetic to this guy. I think his heart is in a good place. He is so transparent, which is also why people may dislike him, but I like that. So real, so entertaining. I see him as a robin hood character – selling to the rich and giving to the poor proletariat artist.

    wow, i hope to someday have the ability to articulate and intellectualize like you guys do. perhaps i do but times i feel that i lack the comprehensive skills to do such a thing. what is a question I should ask myself when looking at an artwork? I have problems talking about my own stuff maybe because im not all the way there. my mind drifts into areas of enigma. the process is there but the end result is a vague translation that i fear will be deteriorated by people who will automatically dub it as ostentatious. i digress. i like your videos, it lets me think about the interpretations of art.
