Fugitive frequency episode 03: ‘trocar’
Performance & interview / Feb 2021
Fugitive frequency episode 3 is themed trocar or exchange. As discussed by Léo Custodio in the program, it implies solidarity amongst activists, researchers and artists who come together across power differentials. fugitive radio will continue to pursue this idea to think about dialogues, collaborations and networks that link marginalised communities and how these relations and infrastructures develop counter-hegemonic power. How might this notion of trocar problematised state-backed neoliberal discourses and initiatives of multiculturalism and diversity?
This episode features: Léo Custodio, a Brazilian-born scholar and activist based in Helsinki; Tania Nathan, a Malaysian-born poet who also lives in Helsinki; ‘Butter Toes’ and ‘Little Boxes’ who are organising the first queer anthology of Bangladesh, ‘Boithoki Golpo’.
