The Winner Takes it All - A listening hour

Broadcast 25th May 2020 on Montez Press Radio, New York City
Curated with Gabriella Hirst

Produced in honour of the cancelled 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, The Winner Takes It All is a programme of sound works exploring pop music as an emotionally manipulative medium with the potential for social and political subversion. The artworks presented make use of the nostalgia, schmalz and escapism of pop music, repurposing these qualities to express social and personal anxieties.

Featuring works by Gabriella Hirst X Majiker, Larisa Crunțeanu, Rowland Hill, Rosa Johan Uddoh and Micha Otto.
