*Ràdio Web MACBA most listened podcasts - February 2018*
*1- SON[I]A #253. Martha Rosler
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/martha-rosler-main/capsula> analyses and
questions the proliferation of surveillance systems and
self-representations in contemporary society, while telling us about
artistic circles in the seventies, the seminal video art scene, and the
need to keep chasing utopias.*
*2- SON[I]A #250. Kenneth Goldsmith
about challenging and unchallenging literature, the DNA of the internet and
what he calls his “third
act”. Link: http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/kenneth-goldsmith-literature/capsula
*PROBES series. Curated by Chris Cutler
PROBES <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag> takes Marshall McLuhan’s
conceptual contrapositions as a starting point to analyse and expose the
search for a new sonic language made urgent after the collapse of tonality
in the twentieth century. The series looks at the many probes and
experiments that were launched in the last century in search of new musical
resources, and a new aesthetic; for ways to make music adequate to a world
transformed by disorientating technologies.
You can find the latest instalment of the series, exploring the impact of
Indian instruments in Western Music here.
*4- SON[I]A #252. Judy Dunaway
*Judy Dunaway <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/judy-dunaway-main/capsula>* talks
about tenor balloons, improvisation, greyhound buses, Western music, the
AIDS crisis, studying with Alvin Lucier, working day-jobs and learning to
play a well-tuned piano.
*SON[I]A #251. Hasan Elahi. *
We dig up some unreleased fragments of the interview with Hasan Elahi
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/hasan-elahi-main/capsula> that we were
unable to include the first time around.
We really recommend our conversation with feminist and Art Historian
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/griselda-pollock-main/capsula>, where we
talk bout her involvement in the Women’s Movement in England in the
seventies, and about the points of convergence between feminism and art
history. Pollock advocates the need to decentralise and diversify
knowledge, and to design resistance strategies specific to each
socio-political context. And, last but not least, also reflects on memory
technologies, trauma, Oedipal and mother-child relationships, narratives of
progress, and Bracha Ettinger’s matrixial ethics.
