Listening: die Mute/Unmute Podcast-Empfehlung
Mute/Unmute is a podcast and seminar by Prof. Dr. Astrid Mania, with the support of Noi Fuhrer and Anne Meerpohl. The idea of this podcast is to introduce and discuss art works, theories and incidents that relate to questions like:
who is allowed to speak, who’s not? What can be said, what not? Whose voices have been suppressed? What kind of narratives and histories? What violence do we exert when speaking about others? What should we urgently talk about?
The podcast addresses a wide range of topics from Philip Guston in the first episode to actions within the HFBK, such as the Institutional Questionnaire of the Critical Diverstiy AG (episode 11), or the Origins of Racial Bias in Photography (episode 19). In episode 21 Noi Fuhrer interviews the DAGESH-price winner Talya Feldman on changing the narratives of right-wing terror. Since last winter semester, 22 episodes have been produced.
