We are making radio here and there, going places where people and other beings are gathering to communicate. It all started with…

Radio Mischpoke started in 2020 with three days radio for Hyderabad Literary Festival

Radio Mis­ch­poke with stu­dents at Saro­ji­ni Naidu School of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Uni­ver­si­ty of Hyder­abad invit­ed by the Pro­fes­sor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Dean Vin­od Pavar­ala. pro­posed a sonorous expan­sion of the Hyder­abad Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val. The live radio in the fes­ti­val and a col­lec­tion of accounts and encoun­ters of the locals with texts and sto­ry-telling of their pref­er­ence, were broad­cast­ed for five hours every day. RADIO MISCHPOKE (fam­i­ly in Yid­dish, used in this con­text as a group of peo­ple relat­ed to each oth­er) set in a stu­dio in the court of Vid­yaranya High School, where peo­ple were invit­ed to make live radio to be aired on the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hyderabad’s Cam­pus Radio Sta­tion FM Bol Hyder­abad and online. The pro­gram of the radio payed spe­cial atten­tion to women’s per­spec­tives on com­mu­ni­ty build­ing and self rep­re­sen­ta­tion. As well, life sto­ries which exceed truth, tra­di­tion and oth­er known cat­e­gories, were encour­aged and trans­port­ed from the inhab­i­tants of Hyder­abad and its sur­round­ings into the con­text of the fes­ti­val.  Apart from the pres­ence in the fes­ti­val a work­shop about exper­i­men­tal Radio was heald  as a method of self-expres­sion and bio­graph­i­cal rearrange­ment.

This radio project was sup­port­ed by Goethe Insti­tute Munich.
