Radio Symposium LaPublika


An international radio-symposium about art and public sphere, with almost 100 participants, conversations, music, performances and sound installations.

LaPublika is a programme of activities concerning the way artistic practices construct the public sphere. We understand public sphere to be spaces considered to be public (the street, the square, the city), such as the internet or the communications media, and the mechanisms with which we participate in managing what is common (language, rites, norms, the aesthetic of collective processes). At a time when new social and civic paradigms are arising, LaPublika seeks to provide a framework of work and reflection upon those processes.

Following on from the 2015 edition, this year’s LaPublika will take the format of an international radio-symposium taking place in Donostia/San Sebastian on October 28, 2016: 15 hours of live broadcast open to the public. Will be possible to listen the whole programme trough website and many radio stations.
