Episode 116: Austin Osman Spare


This week we discuss the life and career of Austin Osman Spare, an artist and occultist who lived and worked across South London.

We're joined by Tom Oldham, an amateur Spareologist and one of the people behind The Bones Go Last, a documentary that traces the work and workings of Spare's life.

We talk about Spare's attempts to document the faces of South London in his series of portraits of dockers, costermongers and match girls and the 'gallery shows' he hosted in his flats as well as the libraries and pubs of Lambeth and Southwark.
