Capturing Arendtian resonances in 2019
The Radio Arendt: Capturing arendtian resonances in 2019 workshop is happening in Barcelona (Hangar), Sarajevo (HUB387) and Trieste (Trieste Contemporaanea during the month of July 2019.
Led by Nicole Dewandre and Roberto Paci Dalò, it focuses on Hannah Arendt, radio and sound, in view of collecting voices of participants questioning, challenging, and receiving what she left to future generations in 2019.
Hannah Arendt is known as a major philosopher and political scientist of the XXth century. She provides the intellectual tools we need today to understand the crisis of the political realm, and –possibly- to step out of it. As she wrote, “there are no dangerous thoughts, thinking itself is dangerous”, but… abstaining from thinking is even more dangerous, as it opens to the banality of evil and an active alienation from our human condition.
In the workshop Nicole Dewandre introduce the life and work of Hannah Arendt, how we can think with her about what happens to us in 2019 and why it is so important for the EU in these critical times.
After this introduction, the participants work with Roberto Paci Dalò in a practical way, recording and editing voices and sounds that become the materials for the final live radio performance to be streamed at 6 pm on Usmaradio(usmaradio.org). This part deals with tools and technologies which allow everybody to enter into the “radio universe” and give life to HA.
Indeed, the workshop is part of the project HA, the creation of an interactive sound-video installation commissioned by the Resonances III Festival and produced by the Joint Research Centre – European Commission. Some of the materials collected during the workshop will be part of HA which will presented in October 2019 at JRC in Ispra (Italy) and subsequently in December 2019 in Bruxelles (Belgium).
