Fordlandia Transmission/Transmissão Fordlandia will present sounds and music from the Brazilian Amazon and the city of Fordlandia through a 24-hr broadcast transmission and month-long listening installation. RadioEE will unfold the jungle city of Fordlandia and its surrounding ecosystems, agricultures, histories, and legacies, hosting site-specific sound projects by local musicians, interviews with residents, and audio experiments. What are the current streams of production in and out of Fordlandia? How are the fallen machines still active today? The exhibition will be broadcast live online for global listeners and in partnership with local radio channels.


RadioEE (Radio Espacio Estation) is a collaboration of artist Agustina Woodgate, curator Stephanie Sherman, designer Sebastian Bellver, and activator Hernan Woodgate. RadioEE hosts nomadic, multilingual, online radio broadcast events focused on mobility themes. Adapting in situ to sites, languages, and cultures, RadioEE provides a channel that cultivates local voices, music, and sound experiments and connects them with to global listeners. RadioEE has curated shows from an AutoBody shop in Buenos Aires, from a truck traversing Washington DC, from a boat navigating the Miami waterways, and many more.
