Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Carl Martin Faurby, Lakou Freelance

Visiting curator Carl Martin Faurby of Copenhagen discusses his project Lakou Freelance at the 2015 Ghetto Biennale, an exhibition with Haitian artists of the Atis Rezistans revolving around discussions on what it means to "curate" a freeform arts festival such as the Ghetto Biennale, in an art world dominated by white-wall, blue chip art conglomerates.

Carl Martin Faurby is a freelance curator and writer. He creates platforms for cultural investigations by means of contemporary art, which usually take place outside of institutional contexts. He is the curator of http://www.altcph.dk/">Alt_Cph 15, Copenhagen's non-profit and experimental art fair for the non-institutional art scene. Faurby is a member of the board of UKK (Young Artists and Art Workers), an organization that strives for better working conditions for art workers within the first 10 years of their careers, through lobbying and discursive projects. He is the author of Object This Picture (2012/2013) and co-author of Force Majeure (2014), and is a regular contributor to the art magazine vKunsten.nu.


Ghetto Biennale: Radyo Shak


Radyo Shak was the independent broadcast voice of the Ghetto Biennale lakou 2015. Based in a shack in the Grand Rue Atis-Resistans compound of Port-au-Prince, Clocktower Radio's Radyo Shak broadcast Haiti's biennale happenings, from December 10-21, 2015. Radyo Shak Program Director Richard Fleming and Radyo Shak Project Director Jake Nussbaum hosted freeform radio in the bidonville, including Rara bands, interviews with locals, artists and writers, project updates, and Haitian revolutionary history over FM radio, Internet radio, and analog broadcast amplified through speakers and PA. The Kreyòl language programming from the Radyo Shak is available here: Geto Byenal: Radyo Shak (Kreyòl) In addition to the recordings archived here that were collected onsite during the biennale, Clocktower's Ghetto Biennale: Radyo Shak series includes additional material gathered from Haitian musicians, DJ sets, record labels, expats, artists, and more, to give our listeners a complete audio landscape of Haiti in the world today.
