Over the years, and thanks to a broad community of artists, phonographers and individuals working with sound and field recording, radio aporee has collected and developed both an extensive body of sound as well as colective tools for artistic practices and research in the field. In addition to aspects of collecting, archiving and sound-mapping, the radio aporee platform also invokes experiments at the boundaries of different media, and public space.

Concepts of transmitter/ receiver and performer/ listener may become transparent and reversible.

The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
