For this Momentum Radio, we have invited the artist Jan-Erik Beck, a local artist living and working in Moss, with probably one of the longest relations to the Momentum biennial. He was in the board before Momentum started, and very engaged in the starting up of the biennial. Jan-Erik is a sculptor and has been teaching at Einar Granum kunstfagskole for years. The conversation with is hosted by Ebba Moi, who is one of the curators of Momentum 12. Jan-Erik will also be sharing some amazing music from the 90th with us tonight.
