Media platforms and Media Lounge

leave a comment »

Media outlets such as newspapers, radio, Internet and television are part of the fabric of everyday life; they represent our desire for knowledge of the immediate, the current, the topical, and are structured to objectively deliver information, depict events and portray opinions.  Yet through conveying ‘reality’ they determine it and define what is public, what is important; what is news; what is our perception of the world ‘out there’? On view in this media environment are constructed narratives from invited artists, writers and media producers as they respond to local and international conditions. Through the course of the biennial, these will be inserted into media outlets ranging from local television, newspapers and radio to the Internet. By receiving, elaborating on and re-transmitting this information and knowledge here in the media lounge, CPS investigates the systems by which reality; its representation and its history are produced.

Overview of media platforms

Media outlets such as newspapers, radio, Internet and TV are part of the fabric of everyday life; they represent the desire for knowledge of the immediate, the current, the topical, and are structured to objectively deliver information, depict events and portray opinions.  Yet through conveying ‘reality’ they determine it and define what is public, what is important; what is news; what is ours, and yours, perception of the world ‘out there’.

By receiving, elaborating and transmitting information, CPS investigates the systems by which reality, its representation and its history is produced; invited artists, writers and media producers unpack such narratives and reveal the erasures, rewritings and interruptions of history and dialogue through TV, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, cinema – together with artists’ residencies, workshops, performances and platforms outside Europe.  In specific to media output:

• La7 Region de Murcia (TV) series of daily, weekly and monthly broadcasts that explore ‘under-covered’ issues, possible futures and narratives that critically question the medium format itself

• Onda Regional Murcia (radio) series of broadcasts that explore issues of identity, mobility and sci-fi scenarios by using drama, interview, sound, music and science.

• La Verdad (newspaper) 10 weekly pages that engage prominent guests in visiting the region, paying attention to Murcia, Cartagena, the region and the living under the perspective of culture, society, politics, economics and other disciplines.

• No-typical.tv (Internet TV and radio) series of video and sound pieces for the web which explore the idea of Internet communication itself and addresses topics relevant to the region in terms of culture and society.

• Magazine and online critical-evaluation platform about M8 and CPS’s approach in relation to the overall theme (dialogue with Northern Africa) and the specific CPS curatorial position. This platform will include 2 printed magazines and 2 online platforms.

Film Programme – Aida Eltoire is a weekly event series organized by CPS and delivered in Centro Parraga Murcia (Espacio 0) throughout M8 duration.
