Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee is online radio dedicated to the arts
We broadcast and produce talk shows, discussions and lectures at art institutes and events. Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee is also an online space for audible works of art and sonic residues of artistic research, installations and performances. Our broadcasts offer an intimate space for reflection on artistic practices and communities. We are based in Amsterdam, but we like to travel.
Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee was co-founded in 2015 by Orpheu de Jong, Arif Kornweitz and Radna Rumping.
The editors of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee are Femke Dekker, Reinier Klok, Arif Kornweitz and Radna Rumping.
Femke is a freelance curator who focusses on interdisciplinary projects that explore the boundaries of autonomous and applied arts, design and music. She has curated exhibitions and events for amongst others Foam, Marres and the Brno Biennial for Graphic Design. As a contemporary culture advisor she works for both commercial brands as well as several Dutch funds such as the Creative Industries Fund and the Art of Impact. And last year she was appointed Director of Students of the Sandberg Instituut. The rest of her time is dedicated to her residency at local radio-station Red Light Radio and exhibiting a fondness of the strange, the weird, the psychedelic and some disco as half of DJ and artist duo Strange Boutique.
Reinier graduated in Cultural Heritage at the Amsterdam School of the Arts where he specialized in audience development. In past projects he introduced audiences to themes, trends, histories and art outside their conventional (institutional) scope.
Reinier currently works for DutchCulture, centre for international cultural cooperation where he organises the international visitors’ programme and advises international artists on funding opportunities, relevant networks and Dutch rules and regulations. He also hosts the radio show Future Vintage on Red Light Radio.
Arif Kornweitz works with sound and is a researcher on the role of regimes of representation in relation to structures of injustice and on possible strategies to subvert the technologies of control deployed by these regimes. He is the co-founder of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee and a partner at Non-fiction, an Amsterdam-based office for cultural innovation. He holds an MSc in Conflict Resolution & Governance. Arif is an advisor to the Amsterdams Fund for the Arts in the categories music, sound art and music theater. He also produces and plays electronic music in clubs and on Red Light Radio.
Radna is an independent curator, programmer and radio host whose work is embedded in music culture, communality and a critical view towards present-day communication. She resides in – borrowing the words of Lucy Lippard – ‘that gap between art and life where I like to hang out’. Radna has realized exhibitions and public programmes at the Oude Kerk, Muziekgebouw, Museum de Hallen and many other institutions, stimulating new encounters between bodies and buildings, artists and audiences. She is also part of the collective Non-fiction and hosts the Future Vintage radio show on Red Light Radio.
