Dustopedia: Radio Dust
Narrated by Arash Khosronejad / Bahar Ahmadifard – Produced by New Media Society – Tehran
Radio Dust attempts to follow parallel stories a portrait of the small Project space in the heart of Tehran and an ongoing project called Dustopedia, a collectively-curated encyclopedia. Along the way Bahar Ahmadifard takes us by the hand and will explain how she gets acquainted with the small institution, how she as a writer and photography critique got herself familiar with the Parking Video Archive and Moving Dust, a traveling video program touring in different cities Tehran, Shiraz, Kerman, Bandar Abbas, and Isfahan, while hearing fragments of the soundtracks of the films and videos in the program.
Besides we enjoy listening to various sound artists and musicians who collaborated with us in the past years. Carefully selected works by Ali Farzadi (Isfahan), Leonie Roessler(The Hague), Rahi Sinaki (Tehran/Vienna) and Kasra Pashaei (Tehran), who were invited to contribute to the podcast. This marks the start of a new chapter for Dustopedia.
On Radio Dust, we also listen to readings of a text by Nebras Hoveizavi on Dust in Mysticism, commissioned by Obieg Magazine – Poland.
Radio Dust is featuring Fragments of soundtracks from The Moving Dust, video programs by Jaleh Nesari, Arash Khosronejad, Anahita Hekmat, Nazgol Emami, Minou Iranpour, Amirali Mohebbinejad, and Aria Farajnejad.
