Groupthink is everywhere, but rarely found in a more pronounced form these days than in the dance scene.
Patrice Bäumel is not a fan of this phenomenon and, to his credit, he is willing to challenge received wisdom and orthodoxy. That approach to life makes him an ideal guest for this show and it was a pleasure to dig into some thorny topics with him over the course of a two hour conversation.
In addition to the topic of groupthink itself, we discussed the definitions of freedom and art, community living at Burning Man, and the legendary Amsterdam club known as Trouw.
I was very much looking forward to this episode, and I think we managed to keep a musical grounding to a discussion which covered many areas of culture, politics, and even some economics.
Here's the KLF book by John Higgs that I reference.
