The Serpentine Podcast: Miracle


The Miracle Podcasts are hosted by Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura and Lucia Pietroiusti and were recorded live at the Serpentine Galleries’ Miracle Marathon, 2016.

The Serpentine’s annual festival of ideas brought together practitioners from the fields of activism, art, anthropology, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, theology and science to focus on ritual, imagination and magical thinking. The 2016 Marathon took place over two days and in two locations across London, Day 1 at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery and Day 2 at Second Home. The 2016 Miracle Marathon focused on ritual, repetition and magical thinking to consider ways in which the imaginary can not only predict, but also play a part in affecting long-term futures. The initial concept for the Miracle Marathon was developed together with artist Sophia Al-Maria.
