Der weltberühmte Romancier, Dichter und Singer / Songwriter on Schriftstellern, Musikern und Künstlern inspiriert. Jahrzehntelang hat Leonard Cohen die Welt mit melancholischen, aber vordringlichen Beobachtungen über den Zustand des menschlichen Herzens beharrlich versorgt. Mit gleichen Teilen Gravitas und Anmut zog er eine erstaunlich erfinderische und einzigartige Sprache hervor, die sowohl eine erhabene Spiritualität als auch eine irdische Sexualität darstellte. Seine Verflechtung des Heiligen und des Profanen, des Geheimnisvollen und der Erreichbarkeit war eine so zwingende Kombination, dass es in Erinnerung geriet.

 Zwischen Monographie und Andachtsübungen dokumentiert diese visuell auffällige Publikation eine einzigartige Ausstellung und huldigt den enormen kulturellen Errungenschaften eines Weltstars. Bildende Künstler, Filmemacher, Performer und Musiker aus der ganzen Welt greifen Cohens Worte, Lieder und Biografien mit neuen Perspektiven auf.

The world-renowned novelist, poet and singer/songwriter inspired generations of writers, musicians and artists. For decades, Leonard Cohen tenaciously supplied the world with melancholy but urgent observations on the state of the human heart. With equal parts gravitas and grace, he teased out a startlingly inventive and singular language, depicting both an exalted spirituality and an earthly sexuality. His interweaving of the sacred and the profane, of mystery and accessibility, was such a compelling combination it became seared into memory.

Situated between monograph and devotional exercise, this visually striking publication documents a unique exhibition and pays homage to a global star’s enormous cultural achievements. Visual artists, filmmakers, performers and musicians from around the world revisit Cohen’s words, songs and biography with new perspectives.

Visual artists: Kara Blake, Candice Breitz, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Christophe Chassol, Daily tous les jours, Tacita Dean, Thomas Demand, Kota Ezawa, George Fok, Ari Folman, Clara Furey, Jenny Holzer, Jon Rafman, Michael Rakowitz, Zach Richter, Sharon Robinson, Carlos and Jason Sanchez, Taryn Simon.

KW-07-2018: Today on Radio – Interview with Leonard Cohen – The Joe Jackson Tapes Revisited: Leonard Cohen, 2018 February 18th at 6pm, RTE Radio 1.

LC-Interview-on-RTE-cLC-Interview-on-RTE-aThe Joe Jackson Tapes Revisited: Leonard Cohen, February 18th at 6pm, RTE Radio 1.

When Joe Jackson first interviewed one of his life-long heroes Leonard Cohen, in 1985, it was, in Jackson’s words, „more of a chat than an interview and I was, and sound like, just another Cohen fan happy to hear anything his hero might say. At that level it’s not a great interview.“ You can listen to it in full above.

In the latest edition of The Joe Jackson Tapes Revisited on RTÉ Radio 1, Jackson also says that this programme, based on that 1985 interview, and an interview, in 1988, is „different from any other show in this series in that, although I am not a fan of interviewers who see themselves as more important than interviewees, I am part of this story because the first interview made me decide to become an interviewer. In that sense this show is purely for fellow Cohen fans.“

„Journalistically speaking,“ Jackson adds, „this programme probably features too much of my own story, embarrassingly so, at times, but making it I did slip back into the fan-meets-his-hero mode that dominated my first encounter with Cohen. But in my defence I also remember Cohentelling me, during this interview in 1985, my first, that he loved to hear about the ways in which people had been affected by his work, and by his life. Meeting him changed my life. In that sense the show is a tribute.“
