5 Cultural Suggestions — Wasted Rita

Every week, UMBIGO invites two people to share their 5 cultural suggestions. What can we do at home? From a book to a podcast, album or film: here are recommendations from artists, curators, gallery owners, cultural activists, friends.

We will share the recipe for what makes us better, and we remain united and positive.

Podcast

Seek Treatment with Cat and Pat
Catherine Cohen and Pat Regan

Catherine Cohen and Pat Regan are the funniest people, so this is the funniest podcast. Signed: me!

TV show

The Bachelor Presents: Listen to your heart
ABC
2020

A Bachelor spin-off in which competitors not only have to find the love of their life, but that person has to be the perfect partner to start a music career together. The height of American trash-tv.

Samantha Irby = relatable queen vibes

Album

How I’m feeling now
Charlie XCX
2020

Charli XCX’s new album, which came out after a joke/challenge made by a fan on the internet. Made in 39 days, at home, during the quarantine.

Movie

Ohayō
Yasujirō Ozu
1959

Two brothers start a silence strike for their parents to buy a television. One of the few films where fart jokes are adorable.


Portuguese artist and illustrator Wasted Rita (b. 1988) has been developing a critical and particularly intimist practice that gives shape to her mordant observations and poetic invectives on human behaviour and contemporary culture through various media, including sculptural objects, installation, painting, drawing, and writing.
