Lara and Stephen Sheehi
more

In this podcast, Lebanese writers, researchers and activists Lara and Stephen Sheehi walk us through the day-to-day reality of psychoanalysis under occupation, Zionist psy-ops and (anti)oppressive praxis. They talk about psychological warfare and about Sumud—or the reverie of resistance—, and discuss the worldliness of our subjectivities in a world that is not the same for everyone.

Laura Tripaldi
more
Writer and independent researcher Laura Tripaldi started her career in materials science and nanotechnology. But instead of approaching chemistry through the lens of the microscope, she decided to zoom out to a speculative point of view at the intersection of science, technology, art, and philosophy. In her work, Tripaldi uses the nano scale to challenge preconceived ideas about identity, artificiality, neutrality and reality itself, exploring how technologies construct and transform our bodies, minds, and societies. We talk to Laura Tripaldi about surfaces, interfaces, the intelligence of materials, spider silk, softness, colloids, rocks and technologies of gender.

M Murphy
more

Murphy works with and against technoscience in the areas of environmental justice and data politics, colonialism, sexuality, reproduction and race. Their approach is interdisciplinary not only in the sense of involving various areas of knowledge, but also in enacting their dual responsibility: the almost impossible task of dismantling extractive racial capitalism, by means of re-imagining radical Black, queer, Indigenous and feminist decolonial horizons and worlds of care. In this podcast, Murphy walks us through permission-to-pollute infrastructures in and around Chemical Valley in the Great Lakes area, the largest basin of fresh surface water on the planet.

MOBILE RADIO WORKSHOP WITH THE RÀDIO WEB MACBA WORKING GROUP
This workshop aims to blend the dynamics of collective learning and thinking by doing of the Radio Web MACBA Working Group with the a life-long research and work of Mobile Radio, a collective of activists and transmission artists formed by Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann. At this crossroads of practices and ways of working, radio represents a fertile ground for listening, experimentation and community experience. As the artists see it, the potential of electromagnetic waves as a subject matter and a new dimension of artistic expression give rise to certain notions –radio art, transmission art…– together with a vast array of practices that can be deployed together.

OBJECTHOOD #9
more

OBJECTHOOD #9 keeps asking questions about the limits and borders of stuff all around us – from countries to nuclear sites. We talk to Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou about her work on exclusion zones and radioactive waste management, focusing on temporal and spatial thresholds. Our second guest, researcher and activist Nishat Awan, talks about unsettlement and geopolitical borders, especially in relation to Pakistan and her field work in Balochistan. Get ready for a deep dive into the oddness of boundaries, including political demarcations, the interplay between insects and radiation leaks, forced displacements, and gigantic triangles, to name but a few.

RADIOACTIVITY #7
Edwin van der Heide
more

In this podcast, we talk with Edwin van der Heide about using radio as a way into the public, outside world, and about radio as a highly regulated space that sometimes resists experimentation. We discuss his early interest in short and medium wave radio and how it came to be expressed in these immersive, awe-inspiring installations, and we speculate about the production of meaning inherent in each of them.

Artist and filmmaker, Shezad Dawood speaks with social and geopolitical anthropologist Mark Nuttall, whose work is embedded in circumpolar rural communities, tracing the entanglements between climate change, extractive industries and identity of place. They discuss the accumulated residues, ecological cosmologies and shifting futures that have emerged from the deepest corners of the oceans, the icy subsurface and geological entanglements of Greenland’s complex landscapes and the lives they hold. Creation myths, told by Greenlandic storyteller Maria Kreutzmann, bubble up from the dark depths of the ocean and rub up against dramatic changes in the landscape throughout the past century.

Troy Vettese
more

In this podcast we talk to environmental historian, researcher and writer Troy Vettese about veganism, ecology and geoengineering and about neoliberalism and the environmental crisis. We look at past examples of vegan socialist experiences and understand the urgency of including animal rights in radical thought. We also examine the tension between nature and the market, accepting the impossibility of dealing with the climate crisis through eco-modernist techno-solutions.

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with writer and researcher Cara New Daggett. We talk about the Mayapple Energy Transition Collective, feminist citation practices, collective writing and the difficulties academia still has with such exercises. We share the traumatic experience of being trolled after writing her essay “Petro-masculinity: Fossil Fuels and Authoritarian Desire”. Coping with the pandemic and parenting with the climate crisis on the horizon are also brought to the table.

We are orality,
we are text,
we are sound.
Radio Web MACBA (RWM) is an online radio project based at MACBA Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. A radio-beyond-radio that dwells in the folds and intersections of critical thinking, contemporary art, artistic research, activism, knowledge transfer, sound… and everything in between. We produce podcasts which can be listened to on demand, downloaded, and/or subscribed to. And we also publish essays, texts, and related documentation, on the verge of filecasting.
