EXTRA-GENRE COMMUNITY RADIO «FANTASIA» ORIGINATED BY TYPOGRAPHY CENTER WORKERS IS TO CREATE A PLATFORM TO SPEAK OPENLY ABOUT ACTUAL PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD SOCIETY AND ARCHIVE MATERIALS COLLECTED BY ARTISTS, CURATORS, JOURNALISTS, ART AND SOCIAL THEORISTS, SONIC RESEARCHERS AND SOUND POETS.
WE CREATE AN IMPULSE AND HOPE THAT IT WILL FIND AN OUTLET IN DIFFERENT POINTS OF REALITY, WE WANT TO COME TOGETHER WITH THOSE CULTURAL WORKERS THAT CONTINUE TO WORK IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
WE ALSO CONSIDER IT IMPORTANT TO FIGHT IN VARIOUS FORMS. THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS OF CIVIL RESISTANCE, SPREADING INFORMATION ABOUT WARS, CONFLICTS, DISCRIMINATION AND A CLEAR AND UNAMBIGUOUS EXPRESSION OF THE POSITIONS.
The most powerful impression, probably, was a conversation with ⒯⒮⒪⒱⒤⒩⒜⒭, an ornithologist, her emphasized communication
in English, “why everyone leaves when you need to resist”, and before that, Oksana Timofeeva’s foreword about how a bird crosses the border and philosopher’s envy for her. There was also ⒜⒭⒨⒜⒮⒣ (artificial ponds with carps for deliveries to the Russian Federation, formed by water forcibly removed from the lake), the border with Turkey, Azerbaijan and Iran. “There is Azerbaijan ... and there is Iran ..., and Ararat itself is Turkey, and in this part, to the right of the top, Noah’s Ark was hooked,” ⒯⒮⒪⒱⒤⒩⒜⒭ said. Well, it was all at the same time and so obvious. Everything came together like a loop. And inside the bright sun and paintings by Saryan, the view from the balcony to ______, delicious food, a salt lake and arched vaults made of tuff.
I was probably waiting for this on / off voice and security. But the music, the writing - it all seemed very hidden to me, such a careful sound in the temples, in the ____________, in the ___________ museum. And yes,
I also went nuts from one photo, from a look, more precisely, from Komitas in this photo. For me, the gaze usually takes away, all the memory of what is happening flows there, like hypnosis. But here it was completely different, there was recognition and the flow in the other direction.
