Cultural life: Juergen Teller, photographer
'I don't really listen to much music, apart from the radio, which my son controls on the school run'
Friday 18 October 2013
I have just been to Frankfurt and seen a really inspiring, fantastic Franz West show at the MMK Frankfurt. The Sarah Lucas retrospective at The Whitechapel Gallery in London is totally excellent – vibrant, full of power, just simply brilliant. Her touch for sculpture, furniture and installing a show... superb.
I was blown away by a Belgian film called Bullhead. When I came out of The Act of Killing I was speechless.
HHhH by Laurent Binet, it's a fascinating fictional, historical novel. Super interesting for me as my Dad comes from the Sudetenland. I also really enjoyed reading Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running. One phrase was, “pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”. That really helped me with my running.
I don't really listen to much music, apart from the radio, which my son controls on the school run.
The first thing I watch on TV is football! Premier League, La Liga... and I watch as much Champions League as I possibly can. Entertainment television-wise, there is really just Breaking Bad.
