Dr Paul Rekret


I deliver artistic programmes, and talks on my research for major cultural institutions internationally including B.A.K (Netherlands), Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Canada), UnionDocs (USA) and Beursschouwburg (Belgium) and I am regularly invited to speak to international cultural institutions such as CTM/Transmediale (Germany), Tate Liverpool (UK), Unsound (Poland), and ISSUE Project Room (U.S.). I have written for a range of international arts and culture publications including Frieze: Arts & Culture, Art Monthly, The Wire Magazine, the Quietus, and CURA. My work has also featured in the Guardian, folha de S. Paolo, on BBC Radio 4 and in other international press and I have curated programmes of talks, sound and video art, and performance around my research at Cafe Oto in London and UnionDocs Center for Documentary Arts in New York. I am also the producer of radio programmes on global sonic cultures for the independent London community radio station ‘Resonance Extra’ and produce a monthly programme of contemporary popular and experimental music for London’s Threads Radio
