The Quarantine Tapes

Listen here

Amanda Vincelli, Co-founder and Program Director of NAVEL, talks with Paul Holdengräber on The Quarantine Tapes.

In this episode, Vincelli and Holdengräber talk about the fundamentals of NAVEL as a non-profit organization, and how important physical space is to the mission and vision of Navel; through assemblies, events, workshops and artists residencies.

Since the start of the pandemic, Vincelli and the team at NAVEL have been re-assessing how to connect within these online spaces, with concerns about surveillance and corporate ownership. Vincelli wonders how we can maintain an autonomous relationship to our cultural landscapes in these online environments.

The Quarantine Tapes is week-day program from Onassis LA and dublab. Hosted by Paul Holdengräber, the series chronicles shifting paradigms in the age of social distancing. Each day, Paul calls a guest for a brief discussion about how they are experiencing the global pandemic.
