In the framework of cultural forum Home Works 6,
taking place in Beirut, Lebanon, from May 14-26, 2013

The Ruptures radio program will host a series of interventions by Lebanese art research project 98weeks,
every Monday between May 27 and June 17

Project description:


On the Poetics and Politics of Language

A collaboration between 98weeks, Lawrence Abu Hamdan and Nora Razian in the framework of Home Works 6

May 18-22, 2013

Our Lines Are Now Open is a series of interventions that aims to look at reading and writing in its different forms, using radio as a means of exploring the poetics and politics of language. The series will be launched during Home Works 6, lasting four days in an abandoned storefront facing 98weeks Project Space. The program in this temporary radio production house looks at the tension between silence and speech and explores questions such as:

What happens to language when violence provokes the act of speaking? When nation building silences a language or creates a new one? How does language shape our relationship to the future? How can we think gender through literature? How can words be smuggled, banned and recreated?

Each day will see live audience participation through a studio visits and phone-ins.
As well as being able to listen online and participate live, each of our events will also be produced as short 15 minutes radio programs, edited by Rayya Badran and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, and broadcast through Ziad Nawfal’s “Ruptures” show on Radio Lebanon 96.2 FM.
