*Ràdio Web MACBA most listened podcasts July 2020

*1/ Professor Oyèwùmi:
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-303-oyeronke-oyewumi> "Part of what I
am doing is to historicize how gender became important in the colonies as
the result of the fact that the colonizers brought their ideas about
gender. That is the crook of the matter". *

In this podcast, Professor Oyèwùmi
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-303-oyeronke-oyewumi> talks about
age, seniority, and respect, about unscrupulousness and academia,
dispossession and spirituality. She considers the oxymoron of the notion of
“single mother” from the point of view of Yoruba culture, and she also
notes how observance of community practices from non-Western cultures may
be an unnecessary step as we face the planetary challenges to come.


*2- Anja Kanngieser:
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-314-anja-kanngieser> "I don't know
what climate justice could exist when the reality is that Kiribati will be
gone. It's undeniable. Kiribati will be gone. You think about what justice
would mean. At the moment it's conversations around loss and damages. How
could you ever compensate for that? An entire land gone and indigenous
people displaced forever."*

Political geographer and sound artist Anja Kanngieser
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-314-anja-kanngieser> works in the
coordinates between space and sound. This merging of disciplines that seems
completely normal to her tends to be more perplexing to the
compartmentalised world of science and academia than to the undisciplined
field of artistic practice. In this podcast, we become the listeners as
Anja Kanngieser reflects on expanded listening, on the inaudible, and on
our anthropocentrism. They talk about their long-standing interest in sound
governance and dissect the many tensions that built up in the project
“Climates of Listening”, which was originally based on the intention of
amplifying campaigns for self-determination and self-representation in the

*3- Mariana Murcia-Laagencia: ¿Por qué siempre estamos leyendo ese
conocimiento que pasa por el norte y se 'bypassea', que llega a nosotros
traducido o no, pero llega, y no estamos leyendo cosas que se producen
aquí, desde nuestro entorno, en nuestro idioma, o desde el sur global?
(only available in Spanish)*

For the Columbian collective Laagencia
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/buscador/radio?key=laagencia>, mediation and
education are indistinguishable from artistic practice. Laagencia first
opened its doors in 2010 in the Chapinero district of Bogotá, as an office
for art projects with an exhibition space, run by Mariana Murcia, Diego
García, Santiago Pinyol, Mónica Zamudio and Sebastián Cruz. Five years
later it was rebooted as a collective thinking and study group open to
methodological experimentation and informality, always looking for ways to
organise new forms of “doing with others”. In this ensemble podcast, we
talk with them about these ten years of "extitution".

*4- Jennifer Walshe: “I am a terrible 'divil', as we would say in Ireland,
for writing down overheard conversations. I love being in really obnoxious
hipster cafés, cause people talk very loudly and the conversations are
hilarious and you write it all down. (...) But it’s fascinating to me,
cause this is how real people speak!”.*

Jennifer Walshe <https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-316-jennifer-walshe>
studied composition and often performs as a vocalist, but her practice and
a whopping list of works over the past twenty years put her in a twilight
zone where music, performance art, theatre and stage writing intersect and
converge. Walshe’s approach to texts, scripts and musical scores is based
on a recursive process, a kind of feedback loop which includes and
acknowledges all sorts of information about the text itself – the context
and paratext. In this podcast, we talk to Jennifer Walshe about writing,
annotating, teaching, collecting, eavesdropping, performing, faking, and a
touch of machine learning.

*5- **Joana Moll:
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-313-joana-moll> “When the only thing
we can think about for solving such a critical moment is another app, there
is clearly a huge crisis of imagination – where we just think there is a
technological solution to anything and that has to be the way."*

Through a combination of artistic research, detective work, and an almost
forensic approach to our own data trail, Joana Moll
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-313-joana-moll>’s work exposes some
of the most pressing issues of our data-driven, data-centric existence. Her
research projects, talks, workshops and art pieces slip through the cracks
of corporate behemoths to make sense of their polymorphic nature and reveal
some of the hidden layers that shape and sustain the hypercapitalist
fractal. In this podcast, we talk to Joana Moll about interfaces and their
social implications, about technocolonialism, agency, surveillance,
exploitation, speculation and, why not, about laughter.
