Safina Radio Project in Venice, is presented during the opening week of La Biennale di Venezia’s 56th International Art Exhibition. Taking place on a boat transformed into a recording studio, Safina Radio Project navigated the waterways of Venice, transporting passengers from one place to another, acting as a roving platform for conversation. The project included travelogues and performative pieces prompted by ideas of utopia and oppression, borders and surveillance, accelerationism and trade, and involved a broad spectrum of artists drawing from a variety of social and political contexts. Transitory communities were created with each journey, bringing focus to collective experience and targeting an investigation into how we locate ourselves and how we mediate our human and historic commonality.
