Quinsy Gario was born in Curaçao and raised in Sint Maarten, Curaçao and the Netherlands, where he now lives and works. After studying Theatre, Film and Television, he focused on Postcolonial theory and began working on activist practices in parallel to his video art.

In 2011 he won the Hollandse Nieuwe 12 Theatermakers Prize, and was a finalist in the Dutch National Poetry Slam championships. The following year, he started his own radio show, called Spanner in the Works.

In SON[I]A, Paul Goodwin, professor of Black Art and Design at Chelsea College of Art, and former Curator of Cross Cultural Programmes at Tate Britain, talks to Quinsy Gario about the role of the activism in the Netherlands today, and about the relation between its performative nature and the boundaries of the museum.

Gario and Goodwin have both taken part in Transfigurations – Curatorial and Artistic Research in an Age of Migrations, an exhibition-research project that brought together international artists and curators from the MeLa* project ‘European Museums in an Age of Migrations’.

Jessica Ekomane

Jessica Ekomane is a sound artist and composer, and a lecturer in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the Universität der Künste Berlin. Ekomane’s quadraphonic performances and installations approach algorithmic/computer music as a social practice that is grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual perception and collective dynamics, and explores listening expectations and their societal roots. In this podcast, we talk about the freedom of play, eMule, pipe organs, the limitations and flexibility of Max/MSP, early non-Western sound synthesis, DIY research, quotas, minimalism, and her early love for Ligeti and Destiny's Child.
