Dates: Thursdays 21st Jan - 18th Feb


The second season of Phono Doc, a podcast series where we go through the work of artists who utilize sound recording as a medium for expressing the spatial and socio-political conditions of every day life, exploring the possible capabilities of phonography and listening in catalyzing social reconfigurations.

In this second season we will get deeper into aesthetics of liberation and decolonial aesthetics, Argentinean 3rd cinema as a form of cultural and political resistance, social documentary phonography, guerrilla phonography, and the recuperation of oral history and aurality as a medium of exchange information and knowledge. Throughout the series you will hear readings, recordings, conversations and interviews.

JUAN CASTRILLO was born in Jujuy, Argentina. His work explores the role of acoustic cultural objects which may allow the confguration of scenarios for political organizing. In the same line, he investigates the esthetic and political potential of sound recording of cultural expressions and social struggles. He is founder and director of the netlabel Earwitness, and also performs audio production for audiovisual projects. He presented his work at Le Consortium Centre d'Art Contemporain (Dijon, FR), Phonophon (Frankfurt, DE), Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (Barcelona, ES), Signal Festival X Edizione (Cagliari, IT), among others.
