Working in Kunsthal Gent:
1 FEB - 1 MARCH 2020
15 MARCH - 4 APRIL 2021
A year after their work period in the development programme was cut short by the COVID pandemic, Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee is back in Ghent.
Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee is an online radio for the arts, that offers an intimate space for radio with and by artists. Past broadcasts can be listened to in the archive at www.jajajaneeneenee.com, offering a combination of sound art, conversations and experimental formats.
During the working period at Kunsthal Gent the team of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee moves out of the radio studio to take time to develop their own voice, and reflect on the medium radio as a space for curatorial research and artistic development. They do this in relation to the space as well as the experimental structure of Kunsthal Gent. In 2020 an episode of their podcast was recorded surrounded by the work of Jesse Jones in the Endless Exhibition. Later in 2021, Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee will host a public event in Kunsthal Gent, with a score of live performances and recorded sound works, as a temporary manifestation of the radio platform and its archive.
Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee was founded in 2015 by Orpheu de Jong, Arif Kornweitz and Radna Rumping, and consists of a team of editors including Femke Dekker, Reinier Klok, Arif Kornweitz and Radna Rumping, with Monty Mouw as regular producer. More than 130 broadcasts can be listened to in the archive at www.jajajaneeneenee.com. Since 2018 there is also a podcast, hosted by Arif and Radna, with highlights from the archive and new sound contributions by artists in the form of 'voice messages'.
Friday 2 April 2021, 20.00 - 21.30
