SON[I]A #403
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.

SON[I]A #402
Eva Maria Fjellheim
more
In this podcast, Southern Saami researcher Eva Maria Fjellheim takes a close, personal experience—a photograph of her great-grandmother from her family album—as a point of departure to unpack the racist and colonial logics that gave rise to the stigma attached to Saami identity, and the prejudices that remain latent today. We talk about epistemicide, strategic ignorance and green colonialism, about ancestral practices that outlast us, and about the territory as a body.

Juan Bufill
more

In this podcast, we sit down to talk with the poet, experimental filmmaker, scriptwriter, photographer, critic Juan Bufill talkl about the foundation of the Film Video Informació (FVI) and the many different artistries that came together there. The conversation starts from the early years of the Spansih transition, when opportunities to re-make everything and to dream seemed endless. It was a vibrant period of creative cross-fertilisation, with an underground, self-managed counterculture in which the energies of conceptual art, video art, experimental film, community video, comics and performance intertwined and radiated in multiple directions.

Ramón Grosfoguel
more

In this podcast, Puerto Rican sociologist and activist Ramón Grosfoguel guides us through centuries of obscurantism in Europe: from Christopher Columbus’s meeting with Queen Isabella in Granada on 11 January 1492 to the debate between Bartolomé de las Casas and Juan Ginés de Sepulveda that laid the groundwork for the biological and culturalist racism that persists to this day. In doing so, he dismantles the Doctrine of Discovery and the universalist and ahistorical assumptions of Eurocentrism and modernity that still abound in academia.

about Son[i]a
Son[i]a functions as a mirror and a sounding board for MACBA itself.

Son[i]a was the first RWM programme, launched on 2 May 2006.
