Temporary performing radio station, performative studio and living archive. Pan-African-Space-Station (PASS) is an online radio station and audible exhibition space. The project was launched in 2008 by the quarterly pan-African (literary) magazine Chimurenga and the musician and composer Neo Muyanga and has since been on air in London, Mexico City, Cairo, New York, Helsinki and Lagos, among other places: “Taking advantage of both the intimacy and unpredictability of the live radio studio space and the reach and scope of the internet, PASS POP-UP seeks to forge new collaborations across time and space,” the creators write about their concept of the traveling studio.
