Stranded FM: Connect/Re:connect – On The (Im)possibilities of Online Radio

Stranded FM (Jolijt Bosch and Luke Cohlen) 

Why stream? Archive? Did online radio become a marketing tool? Boring? Collective? Ego? How can we truly support one another? Does this all still make sense?

In the booming online radio world, terms like community and connection are the first thing you encounter. Yet, with an increasing focus on DJ mixes, video content, and self-promotion, a lot of the experimentation and care that makes radio a beautiful medium disappears. Meanwhile, the cloud is bulging with unlistened recordings. How can we turn this around, or at least make more space for imperfection and consciousness? How can we respond to our connections and reconnect in the process?

The Re:connecting… training is split across time, allowing digestion to take place.

Day 1: Sunday, 2 April 2023

A freeform day of experimental radio making. Here, participants and UPS sonic associates are led and joined by Stranded FM community members to play with the monster’s tools (as opposed to the master’s tools). They will explore what radio can do and mean, live in action. Bring thoughts, materials, recordings, anything! 

Day 2: Sunday, 21 May 2023

Roundtable conversations with moderators heavily involved radio as an artistic and public practice. Blurring the binaries of sender and receiver, participants will join and expand the conversation on radio’s (im)possibilities.

Radio Relay

Commons-minded radio platform lumbung Radio, which came to life during documenta fifteen, will be continually relayed to Stranded FM’s channel two during the exhibition period. Expect audio-material from the two workshop days as well as spontaneous schoolhouse documentation to be streamed through both platforms, coordinated by UPS sonic associate, Benjamin Henninger.


Collective vegan lunch from 12:00–13:00 hrs. Meal included in the enrollment fee. The abundance and variety of the menu depends on the luck of the b.ASIC a.CTIVIST k.ITCHEN’s dumpster dive.


Registration to both days is preferred, but not required, via

Capacity: 20 participants

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. 


3 May, 12.00–4 May, 18.00 2023

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.
