Son[i]a #187 Diedrich Diederichsen
Diedrich Diederichsen is a cultural critic and music journalist whose teaching and writing straddle contemporary art and music, with a particular interest in the area where the two converge: pop culture. He teaches at Merz Akademie in Stuttgart and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and is a regular contributor to Art Forum and Texte zur Kunst. He was editor of the German magazine Sounds in the heyday of Punk and New Wave music in the early eighties, and editor-in-chief of the influential magazine Spex in the nineties.
SON[I]A talks to Diedrich Diederichsen about the role of criticism and creativity in contemporary art, the social dimension and signifying potential of today's music, and the links and differences between the art and music worlds.
