TALK RADIO DAY
#ME CRAFT #YOU INDUSTRY #WE DESIGN
A STUDY DAY CHAIRED BY SOPHIE KRIER AND ERIK WONG
10h00–11h30 / 13h30–17.30
LIVE RADIO SYMPOSIUM
Energy needs to travel in, out, and between physical, social, and cultural bodies: if it is left to accumulate in one of these, it can cause malfunctioning (illness, discrimination, colonisation). Similarly, money is meant to flow. If it gets stuck somewhere, it will cause a disease (corruption, greed). For this reason, artist Josef Beuys always kept stacks of banknotes in the pockets of his vest. Regularly, he would redistribute the money to whoever in the room had a good idea (1).
In three rounds of animated and speculative Talk Radio, hosts Erik Wong and Sophie Krier will explore possible connections between craftsmanship, industrial production, and the social realm with internationally renowned table guests. Which new configurations can we discern for tomorrow’s world? How can we address antagonistic attitudes and agendas of different societal groups? Which collective horizons of meaning can we imagine?
