Last Sunday, September 6th, Nicole Caruth posted information about the 7th Gwangju Biennale. As a compliment to the events and festivities surrounding the Biennale, Abdellah Karroum will present RADIO APARTMENT 22: GWANGJU 2008. One of the Position Papers curators for the Biennale, Karroum founded Radio Apartment 22 in 2007, which is Morocco’s first exclusively art and culture radio station and is a component of L’appartement 22, founded in 2002. From September 1 through September 9, the online radio station is broadcasting a variety of live and recorded programs from the Gwangju Biennale, its participants, and the surrounding environment.
R22: GWANGJU shifts the usual mode of discourse associated with biennials, such as panels, presentations, etc., to the airwaves, making it accessible to a world wide audience. Visit R22 on the web where you can currently listen to broadcasts from the last 8 days of programming including: interviews and discussions with Okwui Enwezor, artistic director, and other Gwangju Biennial curators, critics, and artists, as well as presentations, performances, events, and formal and informal gatherings related to all aspects of the organization and realization of the Biennale. Log on, tune in, enjoy.
