Ultra-red member Manuela Bojadzijev will provide an overview of a selection of Ultra-red's past and current research projects in order to illustrate the collective's sound-based intervention methods. She will discuss key theoretical influences on their participatory research processes and will address the relationship between their political and aesthetic investments.
In the world of modern electronic music and sound art, Ultra-red distinguish themselves for their unique blend of political commitment and innovative sound. For over ten years Ultra-red have pursued a dynamic exchange between art and political organizing. Collectively, the transnational group of audio activists has undergone an array of reserach projects into topics from migration, racism, sexuality, gender, to poverty, and produced radio broadcasts, performances, recordings, and installations, often in close collaboration with community-based political organizations.
