Radio Corax Bilateral Visits
Visit in Slovenia in September 2014
The priorities of the bilateral visit from Radio Corax in Slovenia were the questions of how Slovenia has passed and processed the socialistic past of Yugoslavia. We were interested in the change of the political system of Yugoslavia in the 1990’s on the one hand and in the separation and state building process on the other hand. We produced issues about the historical facts of the state building of slovenia, the development of the alternative culture in Ljubljana with the example of Metelkova an radio student as the oldest community radio in europe, as well as about the avantgarde of the Slovene contemporary art in the eighties and nineties. Therefore we interviewed different people, as for example Miha Zadnikar, one of the first occupants of Metelkova, or Božo Repe as an expert in 20’s century Slovenian history.

In mid of June 2015 we visited Radio Grafitti / Radio Ara in Luxemburg. The priority of our bilateral visit was the history of the Schengen Agreement as an important part of the history of the EU. The treaty was signed 30 years ago, on 14 June 1985 near the town of Schengen in Luxembourg. We visited the european museum in Schengen just one day before the 30th anniversary of the treaty.
Another more actual topic, wich is related to the Schengen Agreement, is the the current situation of refugees in europe. We met some artists and activists to talk about the topic of refugees in Luxemburg and Italy.
