Sharjah Art foundation Commission: 4/4 Listening on the Move
'The Far Becomes Near' series- Episode 4 /4: Listening on the Move, examining the rise of radio in parallel to the formation of the United Arab Emirates. Radio was a centrifugal force for ideas of community and of nationality, but how has this changed with today's proliferation of on-line listening platforms? Through conversations with broadcasters, academics and media commentators, this show examines what broadcast practices tell us about UAE's current national and smaller community identities.

 'Documenta14 Athens Part II'. It's time for the Orthodox Easter ceremonies in Greece, yet themes of economy, mass migration and identity filter through the streets and occasionally subsumes them. Meanwhile Documenta14 from within the frame of the art industry, seeks to address these pressing issues that we either face, or hide from today, documenting how art has conveyed the brutalism, the poetry and the madness of human reality in the past. Visit sixpillars.org for part I.

Oumaïma Manaï, a young choreographer from Tunisia, discusses her role at the Tunisian Pavilion at Venice Biennale, and the role of hip hop in offering Tunisian youth an alternative language by which to express themselves. The pavilion holds no artworks but employs dance as a means of animating the debate on migration, around which the curation is centred.



As the quinquennial Documenta14 opens in its second city, Kassel in Germany, we hear from participating artist Joar Nango. One of the endangered Sámi tribes in Norway, Nango creates an installation called European Everything at the Athens Conservatory and will now present his travelling theatre at Kassel this week.
