This Thursday 13 August, I will present again a two hours long show for Radio Staalplaat. This time focused to Latin American electronic, electroacoustic and other alternative music, including various artists from Venezuela, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala, Uruguay and so on. In case you would miss it, I will archive it on my Soundcloud and delete the previous two hours show I made two weeks ago (including artists from Asia mostly and a bit from Africa - hurry up if you missed it !)
You will be able to listen to it on DFM, between 23h and 01h CEST (GMT+2).
Open Call – The Art of Anti-Exclusion (in Singapore, open to foreign artists)
The Art of Anti-exclusion seeks to preserve a connection between the excluded and the gated, between the spaces of no-man’s land and spaces of high value. It seeks to establish communication across spheres that otherwise never collide and as a result, miscommunicate towards further segregation, separation and conflict. Across the world, artists have sought to do this, in varying capacities, with limited resources. The Art of Anti-exclusion aims to present a range of excellent artistic endeavours, which have sought to level the field of communication and as a result have eradicated a distinction of value in favour of only one side. As a symposium, it seeks to assess the means of community access, the mode of aesthetics and the measure of significance of such work.
