Manage series 2284608
Mykki Blanco’s podcast was produced whilst on a residency hosted by Hordaland Kunstsenter in the autumn of 2017. The podcast was initially launched as a live performance event by Blanco held at Hordaland Kunstsenter on 27 October, as part of Meteor festival 2017.
The podcast is part of a series also featuring Mårten Spangberg’s “News from the Last of the International Hot Shots / Natten”. These podcasts further Hordaland Kunstsenter’s ongoing exploration of the notions of publicness, institutional presence, and audience using the wide dissemination potential of the medium of podcast to challenge the conventional institutional limitations of presenting and sharing artwork experiences. Furthermore, the project questions how artistic qualities not native to audio - such as live performance, writing, choreography and visuality - can be translated for a sound broadcast concept, and whether the distribution of podcasts might offer a platform to increase the “visibility” of performance art in a contemporary art context in which performance still lacks consistent presentation opportunities outside of live events and video documentation.
