Freispiel: minusSPAMminus

Eine Sendung über alltägliche Störungen und ein Leben ohne sie…
von Ralf Wendt und Jasmina Al-Qaisi

This radio work is coming out of an invitation from Afrika Diva Collectif in Kinshasa. Using a non-linear approach to documentary, a circular audio collage with voices and audio accounts on daily life disturbances was created out of getting in touch in a very focused communication moment with people. We asked everyone and ourselves: how can life minus spam be, how a life without spam could look like?

minusSPAMminus (SPAM 6) is a work made for radio and of spam facts, + and – regarding spam, personal stories triggered by spam in a material, non-material, historical and emotional manner, all assembled by Jasmina Al-Qaisi and Ralf Wendt with their invited friends and collaborators who decided to respond to the email they sent with the word SPAM in the subject.

On air: Sunday, 10 January, 8 – 11 pm
