Radio Slumber: Séance No. II


RADIO SLUMBER is a three-part international radio aural brew and online grimoire on Asian diaspora communities in Europe. The work casts its gaze out from a closed-door coven of potluck workshops + secret societies + spa retreats + fests of slumber that took place at Motel Spatie in the winter of 2020.

Strategically dissecting cultural theorist Rey Chow’s „fascist longings in our midst“, RADIO SLUMBER’s audio book of spells whispers gossip about the accidents of intersectionalism and explores—via the foundation of friendship—other practices of care from both near and far.

Follow and listen to RADIO SLUMBER séance No. 3 at Hong Kong Community Radio (HK) + Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee (Amsterdam) on Sunday, 14 February, 18:00-19:30 CET

The works contain collaborations from Vienna-based collective Mai Ling, including:
– Clara Balaguer (Phillippines, Netherlands, Spain)
– Teana Boston-Mammah (Slovenia, UK, Netherlands)
– Chao Co-op (China, Hong Kong)
– Seecum Cheung (China, Viet Nam, UK, Netherlands)
– Zoénie Liwen Deng (China, Netherlands)
– Angeliki Diakrousi (Greece, Netherlands)
– Clara Jo (Germany, US, S. Korea)
– Utrecht-based Read-in
– UK-based Rising Bun (UK, Hong Kong, Netherlands)

Curated by Elaine W. Ho and Amy Suo Wu in cooperation with Stranded FM (Utrecht, Netherlands), Radio Orange (Vienna, Austria), Hong Kong Community Radio (Hong Kong) & Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee (Amsterdam, Netherlands).
