Radio Transmission Ark is on the shortlist for this year’s Ethnographic Terminalia to be held in San Francisco in November. We are so excited about this possibility!
From the ET website: “No longer content to theorize the ends of the discipline and possibilities of new media, new locations, or new methods of asking old questions, Ethnographic Terminalia is working in capacity to develop generative ethnographies that do not subordinate the sensorium to the expository and theoretical text or monograph.
Ethnographic Terminalia is an initiative designed to celebrate borders without necessarily exalting them. Now in its fourth year of exhibition, it is meant to be a playful engagement with reflexivity and positionality; it seeks to ask what lies beyond and what lies within disciplinary territories. Ethnographic Terminalia is an exploration of what it might mean to exhibit anthropology – particularly in some of its less traditional forms – in proximity to and conversation with contemporary art practices. The terminus is the end, the boundary, and the border.
It is also a beginning, its own place, a site of experience and encounter.”
