SON[I]A #398
Yaiza Hernández. Deleted scenes
more

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with researcher and transdisciplinary curator Yaiza Hernández. We unpack the relationship between militarism and tourism by looking at zonified border territories that also model touristification. Through this lens, we also see that the tourist resort replicates the architectural layout of the colony, offering safe spaces for privilege, wealth, and whiteness. Then, we take a look at the current form of the museum model, warning of certain symptoms suggesting it is reaching a terminal stage. We wrap up with a digression into Yaiza’s understanding of cultural appropriation.

Son[i]a #385. Gabriel Chaile
Deleted scenes
more

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with Tucuman artist Gabriel Chaile, which we couldn’t include the first time around. We talk about his education through a mix of public school, recounted memories, and observing family handicrafts. Once again, we defend slowness as a way of being and living in the world, and we join Nestor García Canclini in wondering how to think about the coexistence of elements or groups that consider themselves different, in our turbulent times.

Son[i]a #388. Macarena García
Deleted scenes
more

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with Chilean writer, editor and academic Macarena García, which we couldn’t include the first time around. Macarena talks about her interest in observing and analysing how processes and consensuses in culture, society, ethics and politics are put to the test in the field of childhood studies. She focuses on artistic expressions such as the case study of children’s literature, and more specifically scrapbooks. We also chart a brief genealogy of picture books and the many narrative strategies that issue from it: from challenging books to non-educational relations between text and image, and the figure of the ellipsis.

Son[i]a #382. Itxaso Corral
Deleted scenes
more

We dig up some unreleased fragments of our conversation with choreographer, performer and artist Itxaso Corral, which we couldn’t include the first time around. With Itxaso, we embrace the complexity of being-and-doing-with-others, and we look inside some of the notions that underlie her thinking-by-doing: hijacked words that can be set free, such as tenderness, naivety, empathy, modesty and cringe. We also open up a host of questions—poetic, political, and convivial—in order to spend some time with them, leaving them unanswered. How far do things go? Is reading a text just reading a text? Does a written text remain only on the page? Is there no vibration? Who is legitimized, and to say what? Which things are accepted as legitimized and which are left out? Do I seem to be alone? Where can we come together?

about Extra
Extra is our catch-all section for unused recorded material that does not fit the narrative of our already generous podcasts, as well as miscellaneous processes and happy accidents. It is the space for all those “What if…?”, “Why not…?” and other excesses that occur when working with artists and disregarding the clock, from time to time.
