«When I say vision, I don’t mean dream – A Live Mixtape about Counter Mythologies»
Amal Alhaag & Maria Guggenbichler, Live Radio Show

The live Mixtape «When I Say Vision I Don’t Mean Dream» approaches female, femme, feminized, feminist, non-binary, queer of color counter mythologies.
Visions and imaginative acts which circumvent whiteness and the white gaze as central. (Collective) acts and stories of refusal, withdrawal and privacy – diverting towards what Hortense Spillers has called the «Black intramural», the community’s internal engagements.
A shifting of the center. Gestures and acts of imagination which speak to and from, listen and respond to and from the other centers. To and from here.
No explanation is given. Codes are kept codes. Refusing translation. Keeping what is explosive, explosive. Toni Morrison says about her novel «Paradise» being banned from Texas prison libraries: «It seemed like an extraordinary compliment that «Paradise» could actually blow up into a riot in a prison. The thing I am interested in is the perception of certain kinds of novels as not just explosive in a dangerous sense, but explosive in a way that could be lethal.»

Amal and Maria are friends. They met over a shared love for music; hyperactive organizing of gatherings and events of many formats and shapes; and a deep investment in critical, ex-centric or counter cultural practices and thinking.
Since 2014 they have collaborated on events, programs and pranks, together with other friends and people who became friends. Gatherings always involve bodies and minds coming together, listening and sharing (sometimes difficult) conversation; and are very often full of laughter, dancing and joy.

«When I say Vision I don’t mean Dreams» is a comment James Baldwin made (in brackets) in his 1961 essay «The New Lost Generation.» The radio show is also presented on Friday 23 February at Berne university, at the conference «The evidence of things not seen – Queering Europe with James Baldwin».
