An ongoing project initiated by Marie Thompson and Annie Goh, who features in conversation with Jessica Ekomane for our Deep Listen feature this Sunday, Sonic Cyberfeminisms draws upon intersectional feminist praxis and the legacies of cyberfeminism. The project aims to foreground agendas of social justice in the domains of sound, gender and technology and, in doing so, develop critical cultural work.

This podcast, alongside an accompanying zine, emerged from a week-long residency at Wysing Arts Centre in 2018, is a collection of sounds, conversations, words and ideas brought together as part of the residency.

ii.) Watch: Fatoş Üstek, Curating beyond exhibition making at Rupert, Lithuania.

Here, London based curator and DRAF director Fatoş Üstek presents a talk for Rupert’s TALKS series, touching on her work in which she aims to investigate the potential for curating both with and beyond institutional parameters, seeing curating is a form of agency that activates the social and public.
