Our Movements Are Loud

 

"Our Movements Are Loud", produced by Bridge Radio, commissioned for Glossary of Common Knowledge 2021’s seminar on the theme of Subjectivisation, co-organized by HDK-Valand Academy – Arts and Design, University of Gothenburg, L’Internationale Online and Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana. The partners engage a fluid network of listening sites – Radio Alhara in Betlehem, Bridge Radio in Copenhagen and Radio Student in Ljubljana where provocations on the relations between essentialism and subjectivisation may be positioned and disseminated, thereby offering widened greater accessibility and geographical reverberance.

"Our Movements are Loud" has been produced collectively by people with and without Danish citizenship. They are linked to each other through their experience of the asylum system in Denmark.

The radio play consists of different perspectives, positions and voices that coincide in a story about the fight against expulsion. These interwoven stories take place in an imaginary scenario and are told by activists working inside and outside the asylum camps.

The stories in the radio play are based on real events that have taken place in asylum camps, airplanes and in larger protests that The Bridge Radio and its network has participated in.

The process of creating the radio play started with a workshop in writing and drama for radio with writer Athena Farrokhzad, director Saga Gärde and sound designer Arash Pandi.

Climate Forum

The Climate Forum is a space of dialogue with respect to the concrete eco-political operational practices implemented within the art field.

The Climate Forum is a space of dialogue and exchange with respect to the concrete operational practices being implemented within the art field in response to climate change and ecological degradation. This is the first in a series of meetings hosted by HDK-Valand within L'Internationale's Museum of the Commons programme.

The series builds upon earlier research resulting in the (2022) book Climate: Our Right to Breathe and reaches toward emerging change practices. It asks: How might the speculative and critical insights framed within the registers of the discursive, the affective, and the symbolic be operationalised within everyday working? While the wider agenda of the series is to consider institutional practices, the first session maps some of the ways ecopolitics are formulated by artist and activist iniatives.

Open Call – School of Common Knowledge

MSU (Zagreb), Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven), MG+MSUM (Ljubljana), ZRC SAZU (Ljubljana) and L'Internationale invite applications for the new School of Common Knowledge (SCK) to be held in Zagreb and Ljubljana 24–29 May 2024. The School of Common Knowledge draws on the network, knowledge and experience of the L’Internationale museum confederation. Its ambition is to be both nomadic and situated, looking at specific cultural and geopolitical situations while exploring their relations and interdependencies with the rest of the world. The SCK is built on the basis laid by the Glossary of Common Knowledge project initiated by Zdenka Badovinac and Moderna galerija (Ljubljana) and continues its co-learning methodology.
