Great news: (Non) Humanism and Animism by Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman and But What About has been selected from an open call for the CTM Festival Radio Lab. The piece premiered at our exhibition Senses Working Overtime and was created during a residency at Gaudeamus. Selected from 175 proposals from 43 countries, (Non) Humanism and Animism is 1 of 2 winning projects that will be performed at the CTM Festival taking place from 25 January to 3 February 2019 in Berlin.
Awarded by Deutschlandfunk Kultur – Radio Art/Klangkunst and CTM Festival, in collaboration with ORF musikprotokoll im steirischen herbst festival, Ö1 Kunstradio, and The Wire magazine, the CTM 2019 Radio Lab open call sought unusual explorations of the artistic possibilities of radio and live performance or installation mediums, while also addressing the CTM 2019 – Persistence festival theme.
The Wire’s Phil England comments: “(Non) Humanism & Animism will give festival attendees and radio listeners a unique perspective into a contrasting cultural perspective, one that we hope will transport listeners into another reality while providing an insight into a colonial past that needs confronting as well as a powerful, living example of persistence.”
