In this episode, we are speaking with Erling Kagge. Based in Oslo, Norway, Erling is a lawyer, publisher, writer, and explorer and has been an art collector for over 30 years. He is the first person to ever surmount the Three Poles; the North Pole, the South Pole, and the Summit of Mount Everest. His collection champions young emerging artists, focusing on individuals who are just starting out. In 2015, he published, “A Poor Collector’s Guide to Buying Great Art” to show how limitations can make for very interesting collections. His most recent publications are Silence: In the Age of Noise and Walking.
