1. Rituel radioactif de désenvoûtement de la finance” by Laboratoire sauvage de recherches expérimentales Désorceler la Finance – Radio Campus Bruxelles.
Le Rituel radioactif de désenvoûtement de la finance is a radio performance halfway between a magical ritual and an act of resistance.
It engages the metamorphosis of our relationship to capitalist power. The audience, the listeners, are invited to cut the link we have with this power to free ourselves from its hold on our lives.
This rite of passage gives rise to a real and living collective, capable of resisting the stupefaction of disasters, and of making something new. The health, economic, social and environmental crisis has exacerbated financial imbalances, inequalities and the dysfunction of the dominant mode of production. It has underlined the way in which our rights are flouted. It has shown that what is most important, what we value most, starting with our health and that of our loved ones, is worth no more than an accounting line: apart from applause, little or nothing has been done to change the health system, and commodification continues. It is time to get rid of vertical management and austerity policies; it is time to get out of the emergency, out of the reign of experts, and to facilitate the appropriation by the population of the problems it encounters; to share our knowledge, our resources, our common actions.
The Radioactive Ritual of Unblinding of Finance relies on collective intelligence, opens up imaginations and gives us the power to bring forth alternatives to power and the economy. This radio piece was made on October 15th, at dusk, we unblessed ourselves from the sorcerous power of finance on our health, on the health professions.

2. “KINsequences, a sculpture that wants to get made”, by Writers Kin – Soundart Radio, Devon, UK.
KINsequences is a collaborative piece of writing by Molly Allam, Sovay Berriman, Alan Braidford, Tara Casey, Rachael Coward, Joanne Dorothea-Smith, Claire Gladstone, Tina Kutter, Clementine Neild & Frances Staniforth. The text has been built by each participant writing in response to the person that has preceded them. It is both in the Surrealist tradition and a version of the parlour game known as ‘consequences’. Each writer can only see the previous participant’s contribution, with the whole only being revealed at the end. The text contains enough common threads to form a narrative arc but travels in unanticipated directions and represents a chorus of voices, both visually and through language. There are three acts; Act I: A Sculpture That Wants To Get Made, Act II: The Making, and Act III: The Viewing.
Writers’ KIN is a group of artists who regularly meet through CAMP, a member led support and professional development network for artists, curators, producers and arts writers living in Devon and Cornwall. A group reading of KINsequences was performed from this co-created and illustrated text, recorded and produced by Shelley Hodgson at Soundart Radio.
