Diorama: a model holding various temporalities in one place, in one scene and usually in 3 dimensions.
Broken Diorama was originally broadcast on Radio Quantica Lisbon, as a guest mix by Alison Ballance and Alice Rekab for Diana Policarpo's HERETICS #12 on 17th November 2017. For this broadcast, artists, architects and theorists were invited to contribute recordings that gathered loosely around the theme of the Diorama as a place in which multiple stories or broken retellings can be read as one or in parts; where the sequence of these narratives is dependent on the onlooker.
For this year’s Dublin Art Book Fair Broken Diorama is presented as a table with writings and publications from the broadcast's contributors. Alison Ballance and Alice Rekab will be present to introduce their project to visitors and have produced two new textile works to facilitate the display of the written material and activate the Atrium area as a place for reading and discourse. Visitors can listen to the broadcast during the Book Fair in the Atrium at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios’ and via the link below.
The broadcast will also be aired on Dublin Digital Radio at the following times:
Friday, 23 November – 12noon-2pm
Monday, 26 November – 10pm-12am (midnight)
Thursday, 29 November – 3-5pm
