Online and offline: Curatorial and artistic responses to a transitioning internet
Drawing upon personal and practical experiences, the panellists bring together critical and creative investigations of new media and curatorial practices. The Internet represents an emerging space – the terms of which are constantly being negotiated – and in a short time has become a powerful platform for innovation, politics, economic growth and creative practice.
PLAYING IN JUNE …
I remember Syria by Mark Gergis
This week we feature a jaw-dropping collage of music, news, interviews and field recordings from one of the least-known, and most troubled, quarters of the Arab world.
Politically and culturally exiled for decades by the western media, Syria is rich in art, music and culture.
We’ll be playing I Remember Syria, a collage recorded and surgically-assembled by Mark Gergis (photo right) from two trips to Syria in 1998 and 2000, featuring recordings made in Damascus: street scenes, a wedding, a mosque interior, spontaneous live music and interviews with citizens, radio broadcasts, a song about Saddam Hussein, and the mystery of an underground city called “Kazib”.
Released by Sublime Frequencies, you can also download it here, with all proceeds going to aid suffering in the beleaguered nation.
Tune in at 1400 on Mondays and 0100 on Fridays throughout June.
