Radio For Example

Curated by Juan Gaitan and Abdellah Karroum

The Curatorial Delegation’s research trip to the United Arab Emirates is effected through Radio 22, a web radio station that focuses on socially and politically engaged forms of cultural production. For their visit to Dubai, the members of this curatorial delegation, Juan A. Gaitan and Abdellah Karroum, have established a temporary nomadic recording studio in a car that will be circulating throughout Dubai, taking people between different art spaces, public transportation stations and homes, while conducting a series of dialogues and interviews aimed at exploring the ways in which individuals engage with notions of the collective and operate within institutional frameworks.

Radio For Example*

This project assumes radio as format for exploring content outside of the technical, social and political requirements of the image and the object. Privileging the active role of the listener in the construction of knowledge, Radio 22 documents a series of discussions carried out in different places (for example Morocco, Colombia, and Dubai) through live engagement with these specific social, geographic and political environments.

Radio for example becomes a space for interrogating artistic practices and for formulating possible links between distant and different realities and experiences, adopting curatorial positions that are closer to the amateur as explorer than to the professional critic and specialist.

Curatorial Delegation

The concept of a Curatorial Delegation evokes the speed and distractedness with which the field of art engages with politics today, often treating social conditions as subjects of or for a spectacle, extracting content, as one extracts essence from flowers, granting cultural practices the stamp of authenticity, and guaranteeing global recognition.

The Curatorial Delegation aims to translate and propose more intuitive and methodical forms of engagement with available or invented spaces, suggesting ways to establish meaningful dialogue, research, production, and communication (exploration, editing, and publishing).

The Curatorial Delegation operates by deploying different tools for collecting and sharing content, functioning outside of the conventional formats for conducting research and presenting forms of cultural expression.
