Museo Reina Sofia Radio

Reina Sofía Radio

Around 2010 the Museo Reina Sofia commissioned to come up with a radio project. With the arrival of the current Director of the museum’s Digitals Projects, Olga Sevillano, these initial intentions came to fruition, and it was her who collected the pieces that Chiu Longina, Berio Molina, Xoan-Xil López and myself went on incorporating. Olga’s management allowed us to be reimbursed for the work already done, almost a year after the fact, and to be able to receive a fair salary for each podcast. After that clumsy start, Olga and I began to function as a team with a string of frequent collaborators such as María Andueza, Rubén Coll, Javi Álvarez, and Agnès P., besides more infrequent partners such as Arnau Horta, José Manuel Costa and Gloria G. Durán.

From 2010 I have commissioned and published podcasts for all the channels of this radio, but it’s worth highlighting some which were posted on the web itself, such as You probably belong to the cucumbers, which I made in collaboration with Rubén Coll. Or the audio-essay Cárcel de Oro [Gilded Cage] or El 92 cava con todo [’92 Ends it All]. Throughout that time, I interviewed personalities such as Germán Labrador, Susán Campos Fonseca, María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco, Harun Farocki, David Toop, Toni Negri, Michael Hardt, or Jacques Rancière.

Besides all of this radio production, I commissioned a series of projects for the Processes Channel to artists including Pablo Sanz, Oscar Martín, Blake Carrington, Mikel R. Nieto, Andrea Zarza, Alejandra Pérez, Xabier Erkizia, Lucrecia Dalt & Regina de Miguel, Paloma Polo, Agnès Pe, Los Voluble, Keith Fullerton Withman, María Salgado y Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca, Jelena Glazova, Sarah Davachi, Anna Papaeti and Rafael SM Paniagua.
