At 4:30pm today:
Finnish sound artist Niko-Matti Ahti presents”Kaivajaiset” – a radiophonic piece that includes excerpts from an interview. The word doesn’t really exist in Finnish, but it more or less means an event where people dig with shovels. The name is derived from an English group called The Diggers (True Levellers) who attempted to farm on common land and published a well-known pamphlet in 1649. It also refers to Michel Foucault’s reinterpretation of the notion genealogy.
”Kaivajaiset” is a cartoonish tragicomedy that touches upon the nature of opinion pieces, algorithms as use of power and the relations of media, capital and power.
