Radio GAMeC—the project that emerged in 2020 during the healthcare emergency via the museum’s social media channels, and recognized by UNESCO as one of the best museum initiatives in the world to emerge during the lockdown—returns with a new season.
After 66 live appointments on Instagram, the success of the five evenings of Radio GAMeC Real Live, the 16 episodes on board the camper of Radio GAMeC PopUp together with Radio Popolare and the rich schedule of daily appointments that have accompanied listeners for two months with Radio GAMeC on Clubhouse, Radio GAMeC 30 is dedicated to institution’s key anniversary and in continuity with the dialogue-based identity that has always characterized it, making it an observatory over the changes that have shaped the last 30 years of history.
Starting from the point of view of personalities from the world of art and culture who have lived through the experiences of the last three decades first hand, with the aim of recounting aspects of a complex and changing reality, Radio GAMeC 30 proposes a journey in stages, guided by director Lorenzo Giusti and curator Ilaria Gianni.
From the birth of the World Wide Web in 1991 to the fall of Kabul in 2021, passing through the cloning of Dolly the sheep in 1996 and Black Lives Matter in 2013, Radio GAMeC 30 presents a schedule of 30 appointments, one for each year, in a narrative marked by events that, for historical-political, technical-scientific, social or environmental reasons, have represented the opening of a new path or a fracture in a common path. The episodes will be broadcast as podcasts and distributed on the main free streaming platforms.
