A second series of Paperweight Radio: Explorations in Visual and Material Culture has been commissioned by Resonance FM, the Arts Council-funded radio station based in London.
The shows, which look to showcase recent and contemporary work in the fields of visual and material culture (broadly understood) to a generalist audience, will be broadcast in June and July and I am opening up an invitation to those who are interested in being a guest.
Each show is themed; the first series included the themes Screen, Ghosts, Maker Culture, Paper, Light, Mother/Daughter and The Ecological.
For the second series, I am developing the following themes:
- Domesticating the Modernist Body
- Mixed Media
If your work could be broadly understood under one of these headers, and you are interested in being a guest, do please send a statement of interest to email@example.com.
As you can understand, the lead times are very short and although I am still waiting final confirmation of exact broadcast dates and times from the station’s scheduling department, do please send your statements sooner rather than later.
As a further note, if you are interested in appearing on the show, and your work does not fall under one of these themes, I am still interested in hearing from you.
For information, the shows are broadcast live from Resonance’s studios on Borough High Street, London, SE1. However, we do have various pre-recording options for both domestic and international guests with schedules and/or geographic locations that mean they can not be present for the live show. Each interview lasts circa. 15 minutes, and guests are invited to choose a piece of music related to their research to be played at the end of their slot.
