Could radio be a medium of resistance?
Resistance to the economic system?
Resistance to politic discourses?
Resistance to taboos?
Resistance to main tendencies and aesthetics?
But overall - what does it mean to resist?
Inspired by Foucault’s concept of “fearless speech” also known as parrhesia, we wanted to explore what would happen if parrhesia as a “verbal activity” was replaced with “radio language”. Kunst Radio has invited five distinguished artists to become “truth tellers” or “fearless speakers” using radio as a way to express parrhesia through verbal action, electronic sounds, noises and soundscapes to propose a sonic fearless speech.
