RADIO MISCHPOKE — A three days radio for Hyderabad Literary Festival with Ralf Wendt + Jasmina Al-Qaisi

The two radio-art mak­ers and artists pro­posed a sonorous expan­sion of the Hyder­abad Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val 2020. 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) will be set in a stu­dio in the court of Vid­yaranya High School, where peo­ple are 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 the two helt a work­shop about exper­i­men­tal Radio as a method of self-expres­sion and bio­graph­i­cal rearrange­ment at the Saro­ji­ni Naidu School of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Uni­ver­si­ty of Hyder­abad invit­ed by the Pro­fes­sor of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Dean Vin­od Pavar­ala.
