Golo Föllmer, Alexander Badenoch (eds.): Transnationalizing Radio Research: New Approaches to an Old Medium (2018)

1 February 2019, dusan

Transnationalizing Radio Research presents a theoretical and methodological guide for exploring radio’s multiple »global ages«, from its earliest years through its recent digital transformations. It offers radio scholars theoretical tools and concrete case studies for moving beyond national research frames. It gives radio practitioners inspiration for production and archiving, and offers scholars from many disciplines new ways to incorporate radio’s vital voices into work on transnational institutions, communities, histories and identities.”

Flusser Studies, 24: Archiving Flusser (2017) [DE, EN]

1 January 2018, dusan

“Archiving the work of an artist or thinker is an activity that strongly defines and structures our view of her/him. Archives allot a specific place for each selected item and at the same time construct possible paths between them. This implies highlighting some areas while hiding others. In this sense, an archive is always also a metaphor for the work of an author. Traditional archives operate with hierarchical structures like the alphabet, which automatically define s a beginning and an end. Information technology, however, has opened a completely new array of possibilities. This issue of Flusser Studies reflects upon these theoretical and epistemological implications by presenting the different ways that Vilém Flusser’s work has been archived over the last 25 years.” (from Introduction)

With contributions by Vilém Flusser on memory, Bernd Wingert on Flusser Hypertext, Vera Schwamborn on MaHiPo, Klaus Sander and Daniel Irrgang on Flusser-Quellen, Claudia Klinger on Die Flusser-Files, Anita Jóri and Alexander Schindler on the Vilém Flusser Archive, Gerardo Santana Trujillo on MagmaMater, Gustavo Bernardo Krause on FlusserBrasil, and Simone Osthoff on her research on the archive.

A Bed, a Chair and a Table: Stories from the Poortgebouw (2017)

12 December 2017, dusan

A Bed, a Chair and a Table is a publication about the Poortgebouw, a former squat and vibrant living community located in the South of Rotterdam. In this book, oral histories from inside and outside the Poortgebouw are interlaced with material from various institutional and personal archives. By bringing together these tales of resilience, political struggle, frustration and friendship with historical documents, this book brings forward new perspectives about the Poortgebouw’s unique history and its importance in the contemporary city. The starting point of the book was the Autonomous Archive, a local archiving machine built from parts of different computers by the inhabitants of the Poortgebouw and a group of students from XPUB.

A Bed, a Chair and a Table is the fourth ‘Special Issue’ conceptualised, developed and produced by the students from the Experimental Publishing course (XPUB) of the Piet Zwart Institute Media Design Master. It provides a trigger for the reader to further explore the Poortgebouw’s past and to see this building, meet its community, and discuss a potential future amidst all of its complexities. It is a testament to the archive as not the end, but the beginning of a debate.”
