Favela

If you still remember the story of RadioFavela is subtitled Not assumable becomes consumable … becomes subsumable. The links here refer to RadioFavela’s website, where you can read the theoretical texts.

With the chapter ‘not assumable’ I tried to explain the situation in Rio (or in Megacities in general), you can listen to it again in the category RF01 – not assumable.
The middle part ‘RF02 – consumable‘ is any cultural production I had the chance to catch for you. This is definitely the most enjoyable part.

Now it becomes ‘subsumable’ which is my response to all what I have gone through here in Rio, which is a in the carioca harbour zone. Within the next four podcasts you can follow step by step my understanding of the via the city to my in a very high abstraction grade.
