Podcast Andrea Valdés

Between April and May 2020, during the pandemic’s peak, writer and journalist Andrea Valdés carried out a writing residency as part of the 2da Beca de Escritura Silvestre organized by Hangar and La escocesa. Her research thread around self-stories proposed to expand by putting in relation to the writer Carla Lonzi and the artist Lee Lozano, two bodies that intersect vectors and historical fractures related to feminisms, the transformation of work and the emergence of programmatic forms dedicated to leave the art world. Faced with the impulse to slam the door and leave everything behind, Andrea explores what this kind of movement implies, the lenses of flattery and contempt used in subsequent historiographical readings, or the central question of who can really leave.

Hangar, in co-production with Son(i)a Radio Web MACBA, has revisited the conversation recorded with Andrea, Carolina Jiménez and Antonio Gagliano —Hangar’s research team — and organized those contents in podcast format to reflect on pure writing, heterodoxy and spatial optimism. We open the metaphor of soft tools, and the semantic resonance of organs, be they tongues or genitals, trapped by machine’s technical devices. We also comment on the use of the magnetophone, the fluidity of aerial montage and the research of Rivolta Femminile’s self-consciousness groups to find in a private, non-mixed environment, a space for a disruptive speech.
