DD Podcast Episode 2: Art is our knife?


Dát ášši lea dušše eaŋgalasgillii.

About this episode

In this episode Beaska Niillas invites Juno Berthelsen, Qivioq Løvstrøm and Stina Aletta Aikio to an exploration of the knife metaphor in regards to art. Listen in as they discuss the different levels of how indigenous activism might relate to our artists and art. In other words; is art as our knife a weapon or can it also be a tool?
