Los Contenedores (No) Son Mejores Vacios
Los Contenedores (No) son Mejores Vacios is an online radio program in four parts produced by Lola Martinez,which broadcast music that has been impacted, in content and circulation, by the political history of the Cuban Revolution as well as the contemporary repercussions of its regime.
Via the transmission of playlists and interviews, modes of popular music exist as a critical means to explore the potential futurities of Cuba amidst an uncertain political, economical, and social present.
In parallel to the radio program, a listening room was set up at the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies Hessel Museum of Art.
Branding and design assets were influenced by the Lo-Fi DIY means of spreading information throughout Pre-Internet Cuba, the diaspora of street signage in Havana and the digital dust that accumulates on shared files.
