Native Foreigners

A ubiquitous radio broadcasting in Ulises Carrión’s footsteps


Native Foreigners is a radio broadcasting event that happened simultaneously at Museo Jumex in Mexico City, at De Appel in Amsterdam and at Documenta 14 in Athens.

The program brought together Carrión’s fans and scholars alike across space and time with discussions, readings, and performances from all three cities. The radio show addressed the resonance of Ulises Carrión’s oeuvre in contemporary culture, as well as discussed current forms and strategies of (artistic) self-determination beyond, behind, or within institutions.

Three radio stations have been temporarily installed at Museo Jumex, De Appel and Parko Eleftherias in collaboration with three local web radios. Local audiences were welcome to join the event in one of the locations, while everyone, everywhere could and still can listen to the broadcast on the world wide web.

Native Foreigners inaugurated the building up of Unfold’s closing issue dedicated to Ulises Carrión (Summer 2018).
