Show Notes

In this radio episode we are going to analyze the topic of quarantine-ships from a juridical, philosophical and social point of view. The complexity of this matter focuses on an issue that is still open and not completely solved: the legitimacy of a normative system which does not ensure the fundamental rights of the individual, the principle of equality and non-discrimination. The experts we interviewed, analyzed this complex issue, highlighting the critical points. The story that emerges is made up by countless micro-stories of lives who risk to shipwreck right behind our homes, in the name of “public security”.

Par où commencer ? - Série 2 - Se lier. S'organiser. - Mutual Effects

Mutual Effects is art as social research, a tapestry of sound drawing on interests in deep mapping and the Mass Observation movement to connect spaces of care, co-operation and conviviality in a northern British city during COVID-19. Through historical and contemporary prisms of grassroots food activism, a loose narrative moves between field recordings of a pedestrian pilgrimage to Edward Carpenter’s former Derbyshire farm commune, to the sound of 45kg of rescued peas being shelled in a communal kitchen, and through a range of conversations that lay out stark realities of austerity and hostility in the shadow of the monolithic post-European state.

Par où commencer ? - Série 1 - Résiter. Ouvrir. - Many Beginnings (Partie 2)

Pour Hannah Arendt, la source de la liberté réside dans la capacité qu’à chaque personne d’être un nouveau commencement et de commencer "un monde à nouveau". Elle nous met en garde sur la nécessité de protéger cette aptitude à commencer. La raison d’être de l’humain est donc double : l’appel à la "spontanéité humaine" et le refus de sa destruction. "Il nous faut des cartographies plus exactes, moins rhétoriques et plus attachées à une géométrie des passions politiques transversales". Par où se devinent des voies praticables ?   Un podcast en deux parties réalisé par Pascal Brunet et Shelly De Vito. Avec la participation de Laurence Allard, Laurence Barone, Marie-José Malis et James Porter. Lectures par Pascal Brunet, Shelly De Vito et Céline Lanfranco. Audio par James Porter, extraits musicaux Push the sky away de Nick Cave. ...
