PASS landing in Lisbon

Chimurenga and Hangar presented Radio MAC , a program curated by Sonia Vaz Borges and Monica de Miranda – live on PASS 14-21 June 2021.

Radio MAC is a reimagining of the radio organ of the Anti Colonialist Movement (MAC) founded by students and revolutionaries such as Marcelino dos Santos, Mario de Andrade and Aquino de Braganca in 1957 in Paris, in collaboration with Neto, Cabral and other nationalists in Lisbon.

Programming consisted of eight episodes on the role of radio and more broadly, sound, in the African liberation struggle against Portuguese colonialism, along with stories of migration. The constructed dialogues included music, speech, poetry, and performance.

Participants included: Raquel Lima, Telma Tvon, Carla Fernandes, Marinho Pina, Chalo Correia, Galissa, DJ Lucky, and Victor Gama.

Chimurenga and Hangar present Rádio MAC , curated by Sónia Vaz Borges and Mónica de Miranda – Rádio MAC is inspired by the Anti-Colonialist Movement (MAC) founded by students and revolutionaries such as Marcelino dos Santos, Mário de Andrade and Aquino de Bragança , in Paris, in 1957, with the collaboration of Neto, Cabral and other nationalists in Lisbon.

The Radio MAC is a speculative project that rethinks the role of radio in this movement. The program consists of 8 episodes that discuss the role of radio, and more broadly, sound, in the African struggle for liberation from Portuguese colonialism, in parallel with migration stories.

It seeks to build an awareness of past and present struggles and redefine the liberation struggle to a current place and time, through the process of memory, resistance and utopia. At Rádio MAC, the dialogues developed include music, speech, poetry and performance.

Participants include: Raquel Lima, Telma Tvon, Carla Fernandes, Marinho Pina, Chalo Correia, Galissa, DJ Lucky and Victor Gama

The Radio MAC is part of the ongoing research of Chimurenga on aesthetics and radio policy in liberation struggles in Africa.
