Radio as Spatial Practiceby: Paulo Tavares
- In the last five years, police forces have shut down approximately 7,000 illegal radios throughout the Brazilian territory, almost double the number of radio frequency concessions given by the national government in the same period. In 2008 alone, out of approximately 19,000 claims for concessions, only 2,800 were licensed and around 1,200 illegal broadcastings were cut off air ...

Survival Kits: Artistic Responses to Globalizationby: Marga van Mechelen
- Speaking about Survival Kits and Globalization, the first thing that comes to mind is a picture of an age of global unrest, of political troubles, of wars followed by forced migration, and ecological disasters, which force people out of their homes. This raises the question: what do people need to survive it all? Obviously, both literally and figuratively speaking, there is a need for shelters, ...

What Ever Happened to Cultural Democracy?by: Sophie Hope
- I would like to present the politics of connectivity as a form of cultural democracy. After briefly introducing the theoretical framework for the presentation, myself and five characters, played by volunteers from the audience, will have a discussion using a script of an imaginary conversation I have written based on quotes and interpretations of these characters’ writings ...

I don't know how to explain ...by: Anca Gyemant
- I don’t know how to explain this. A discussion with Milena. Someone, an acquaintance of hers who had visited Bucharest, was impressed by the House of the People and the Victory of Socialism Boulevard (I think this was the name). A great and impressive building which glorifies an idea, ...

Trading Placesby: Peter Moertenboeck & Helge Mooshammer
- Informal markets generate sites of shadow-globalisation based on a deterritorialisation of cultures. Many of these markets are hubs of migratory routes whose idiosyncratic complexity reflects the tension between traditional economies, black markets and the new conditions of deregulated and liberalised capital markets. The dynamics ...

Milosevic as Architectby: Srdjan Jovanovic Weiss
- "The man without passion," as Slobodan Milosevic was called throughout the Balkan crisis by international journalists, did not choose to build. For better or worse, he lost the chance to solidify his era of power in architecture. There are no grand urban proposals to be found, no government buildings, no new cities, and no style that is identifiably "his" akin to the stripped-down neo-classical architecture of Stalin or Ceausescu. Of his peers, Milosevic is ...

When the Unavoidable Knocks at the Door ...by: Gulsen Bal
- In contrast to the idea and logic that changing places leads from point A to point B, an odyssey within and/or across cultural boundaries started from Ljubljana and ended in Sarajevo with Lost Highway Expedition1 (LHE). This seems to emerge in response to problematizing issues of geopolitical fragmentation, the conflictual zones, and the normalization in its curatorial strategy in the successor states of former Yugoslavia. The pertinence of this project in the context of this argument ...

Tracing Translocality: The BlackBenz Raceby: Felix Stalder
- The project "BlackBenz Race" (BBR) by Knowbotic Research is a semi-fictional car race from Zurich to Pristina, Kosovo, and back again to Zurich.1 A convoy of black cars, decorated with Kosovo-Albanian iconography and stylized as improvised racing cars, start the race at the international bus station, located downtown, next to Zurich`s main train station. This is a highly public event replete with cars, music, food, and information stalls, put together by the artists as well as the Kosovo-Albanian ...

travelling lexicon towards a global positioning systemby: Celine Condorelli
- Initiatives are first step, the first of a series of actions. An initiative is an enterprise, it relies on the readiness to embark on bold new ventures. In some political contexts, initiative is a form of direct democracy, a system allowing an immediacy of the decision making process ...
