Meet the charismatic couple who own the art collection displayed on Chicago Booth's London campus. Katie and Felix Robyns, MBA '85 began collecting in 1988 to 'feed their souls' while working in investment banking. It has become a lifelong pursuit and they remain passionate about the power of art to educate minds and boost mental health. They also explain their role as curators and why this diverse exhibition is so innovative. 

In this podcast series, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business explores the themes portrayed in the art on view as its London campus. Taking a pioneering apporach, the school uses art as a tool to inspire curiosity in its MBA students and to stimulate discussion around global issues.

Join presenter Emma Clark as she interviews curators and artists to unpack the complexities in their work and explore how art deals with globalisation, racial identity, gender, the role of the media and so much more.
