There ought to be a word: Aliyah Hussain and Anna Bunting Branch in conversation with Devils’ Dyke Network

Claudia Treacher and Violeta Marchenkova from Brighton-based collective Devils’ Dyke Network interview artists Anna Bunting Branch and Aliyah Hussain about their collaborative project Potential Wor(l)ds. The project uses feminist science fiction, printmaking and experimental sound-making to collectively create new words and ways of communicating.

Light+ Who's doing the washing up? is a series of podcasts documenting Curator in Residence Eva Rowson’s six month programme (January – July 2019) ‘Who’s doing the washing up – where’s the sink?’ exploring the role of hospitality at Lighthouse.

Music for the podcast series is taken from a collection of new arrangements composed and recorded by artist Aliyah Hussain, made when working on her forthcoming EP (Bloxham Tapes), based on the science fiction novel Native Tongue by Suzette Haden Elgin.

Produced by Olivia Melkonian and Nats Spada of Brighton-based not-for-profit next generation broadcaster Platform B.
