Süden Radio – OPEN CALL

On the occasion of Süden , an exhibition to be held in Berlin from August 26th to September 8th 2013 Radio Papesse invites you to Süden Radio: 15 days of special broadcasting in which we will try to dwelve into many possible different sonic dimensions of the South: what is it? Is it just a matter of latitude? Is it a phenomenon, is it a method, a cliché? Is it possible to define or to open up the geographical scale of the South? How do we look at it? In the face of the multiplicity of borders, how can we approach it, without reducing the discourse to mere geographical terms? without reducing its complexity into a monolithic phenomenological entity through which and unlike to we define ourselves?
