Artist Georgia Munnik, Sue Style - Swiss Wine and Fête des Vignerons, Tick Tacks Episode 8 - In Summary

Broadcast on: 
18 June, 2019

South African visual artist Georgia Munnik is in Basel at the Atelier Mondial on a three-month residency. Her practice is primarily concerned with performing broken moments in official languages. Currently, Munnik’s research interests are on immigrant-descended youth culture, dialects, and how to transcribe these languages while maintaining their integrity. Join her on Wednesday 19 June 2019 from 7 to 9 p.m. for a survey performance and presentation of her work at DOCK Archiv Diskurs und Kunstraum (Klybeckstrasse 29). Munnik will be performing a one-on-one multiple choice survey and she is looking for participants. Her presentation will start at 8 p.m. and she will be discussing survey as a research method, presenting her larger, on-going research project "The only language I speak is not my own" as well as showing relevant, previous projects. Listen to the interview again here.


Our food & wine guru Sue Style joined us in the studio tonight. With the help of the folks at Bergli publishers, she has a new book on the shelves, "The Landscape Of Swiss Wine - A Wine-Lover's Tour Of Switzerland". The book is written in English with plenty of eye-catching photos on every page and is organized as a clockwise tour of the country, stopping in with wine-growers, famous vineyards, and must-try, unique varietals. Switzerland produces a small amount of wine by global standards, meaning you'll have to enjoy them while you are here - and there is plenty to enjoy according to Sue and her book! Of course, we couldn't talk about wine this year without mentioning the Fête des Vignerons, a once-in-a-generation wine festival which takes place on the shores of Lake Geneva in Vevey, Switzerland. Organized by the local wine industry and running since 1797, the festival is centered around performances and, of course, tasting the local wine. Sue also told us about local Basel wines to look out for. Listen to the interview again here.


We conclude the first season of Tick Tacks with a look back at the topics our hosts explored in episodes 1 to 7. During the previous episodes, Sam and Gwil talked to other Third Culture Kids about all kinds of topics that are unique to their upbringing. On this episode, they reflect on what they've learned. Produced and edited by Dan Saks. Listen to the episode here.






Our music theme this week: the opening track on debut albums, Part 4 (Part 1 was here; Part 2 was here; Part 3 was here). All bands great and small had to start somewhere, and the first song on their first album sets out the stall and says: this is who we are! We played:

White Lies - Death

Editors - Lights

Bloc Party - Like Eating Glass
