A brief history of Munch

Slate has a brief guide to Edvard Munch today. If you’re in New York, MoMA has an exhibition of his work at the moment; if you’re in London, the Royal Academy of Arts has an exhibition of his self-portraits; and if you’re in Oslo, you’ve probably already seen enough of Munch’s stuff to last a lifetime. But now’s as good a time as any to nip on over to Slate to find out more, and to whet your appetite for the real thing.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
