    A repository of artists’ online works that draw their inspiration from Kurt Schwitters. Guided by his innovations in visual arts, spoken word, typography and poetry, the project anticipates how Schwitters’ spirit might have flourished in the online world, while highlighting the debt that new forms of digital collage owe to Schwitters’ formative example. Funded by Film and Video Umbrella, the site includes newly commissioned works by Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Alec Finlay, and George Barber. Their works reflect the many different facets of Schwitters’ aesthetic while exploring today’s ever expanding outlets for combining and communicating images, texts and sounds. Whether using content-sharing platforms such as Pinterest as places to find and assemble material, or experimenting with other forms of digital dissemination such as downloads and applications, the pieces demonstrate how Schwitters’ practice continues to reverberate in the present.

    Weekly British podcast series produced and presented by the research team behind the BBC Two game show QI. Each researcher presents their favourite fact that they have come across that week, but has not made it into that week’s QI programme. The most regular presenters of the podcast are James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber, although other QI researchers also make appearances, and there are guest presenters on some episodes. There are over 240 ‘jolly’ episodes, each packed with ‘impressive and silly facts’ (The Guardian). For example, we may learn why the Italian film director Jesus Franco was once deemed by the Catholic Church as the most dangerous director alive or that the first sandwich was not made by the Earl of Sandwich.
