Conceived, recorded and montaged by a group of radio-affine nGbK-visitors, the 1-hour broadcast explores the ambigue notion, and theme of the nGbK-exhibition “Left Performance Histories”.
It compiles artifacts and archival material from performances in Poland, Hungary, Jugoslavia, and Rumania between 1970 and 1989. Encountering its visual material and accompanying conference, the broadcast interweaves and montages the auditory side and texts of the exhibition with the questions and commentaries of the group, while visiting the show. How can our perspectives relate to the articulations of left critique in this setting? What has been left for us to perceive? Inhowfar did these performance come to an end, as they spark they an “archival archeology” which might be conceived as a montage in itself?
