A sensitive radio program, live from Budascoop for Almost Summer Festival 2021, made less of quotidian informations and urgencies of ‘breaking news’ than of temporal deformations and duration fiven to the repairing gestures of artistic proceesses linked with political context.
kom.post founded in January 2009 in Berlin is an interdisciplinary collective made up of thirty international artists and researchers. Kom.post members base their researches and actions on process, they attach less importance to the production of a collective work than to setting in motion a terrain for interrogation which activates creative “micro-groups”. As the work methods are diverse, each member is able to nourish, prolong, and counterbalance the research of another member or that of the group as a whole, following the principles which are dear to kom.post : the “exchange of knowledge” and the “reprise”, or re-take. The roles of author, contributor, and spectator are constantly exchanged, thereby maintaining the members in a continuous research on forms of creation, transmission and artistic sharing, still permitted and even more necessary in this time of imposed distances. Kom.post is nomadic and presents its creations (performances, new form of mediations, exhibition…) in various European and international events.
