Listen here to the audio stream of the noodle nest dangling precariously from the Ultradependent Public School study hall:

CriTiCal CirCuLATioN MI (on air during BAK opening hours)



This is an open invite to use study group ultraCIRCULATION‘s carb-fueled online radio station, called CriTiCal CirCuLATioN MI. Our remix of circulation is an entanglement of content and form, always in motion, a fragrant infrastructure. It offers a channel for anyone of the Ultradependent Public School as well as everyone of the public to play, record, and experiment with online audio streaming as a means of aural play, critical voicing and listening, and propagation.


This stream will be available throughout the duration of the exhibition, on this page and via sometimes sonic solidarities with our study partners. All content can be archived and re-blasted for later highlighting via relays to be set up with Stranded FM, lumbung RADIO and Hong Kong Community Radio.


How to take part?

  • Come to BAK at any time during regular visiting hours (Tuesday-Sunday, 12-18h), you can live stream via CriTiCal CirCuLATioN MI.
  • If you are not familiar with the medium, simply follow the instructions to learn the basics of online radio via the handy audio manual made by Angeliki Diakrousi and Elaine W. Ho.
  • Spontaneous visits and shout-outs always welcome as long as the booth has not been reserved
  • If you want to schedule a dedicated time (in half-hour or more slots) for dedicated streaming, simply reserve via the online booking form below:

    Complaint Making: Setting Up Conflict-Positive Spaces for Community Building Praxis

    Vishnu would like to share feminist governance tools (FGT) focused on three of many tiers in community building praxis. FGT is based on the values of equity with an emphasis on creating psychologically safe environments, drawing on the use of consent. Decision-making processes, setting up conflict-positive spaces, and complaint-making as diversity work will form the body of this three-day training. Rooted in Vishnu’s autho-ethnographic practice, this work will explore the power dynamics that impact decision-making processes.

    The Diamond Mind II

    In this dance training, the people will use a one-minute film of their own movement as material for a booklet—a sixteen page signature—that distributes their presence, their gesture, as an act of EQ.

    Too Late To Say Sorry? 

    A bad apology can ruin a friendship, destroy a community, or end a career. In this workshop, we will investigate the impact of apologies on our relationships and our worlds. Why and how do we make apologies? What can giving and receiving apologies teach us about values and integrity? Should you apologize for something you don’t really feel sorry for? We will explore conflict and how we like to be in conflict with others. We will dive into our own boundaries. We will seek to understand how honoring limits becomes an act of building (or freeing) better worlds capable of holding so many, many more of us.

    Huisje, Boompje, Beestje (D.A.F.O.N.T.)

    In this rare masterclass, retired teacher and artist Glenda Martinus teaches participants a thing or two about painting with Microsoft Word. Martinus shares tips, tricks, and secrets on how to use this software to its unexpected potential as a drawing tool. Participants learn how to draw three basic objects—a house, a tree, and an animal—in a seemingly innocent exercise that perhaps contains more layered social commentary. Drawing the worlds we desire does not require expensive tools or education, simply a curiosity to understand how the monster’s tools can topple the house of the master.
