Radio discussion about YOYO and the URB 14 festival on YLE Puhe on 01.08.14

I and the director of URB 14 Festival Mikael Aaltonen were the special guests of today’s morning program of YLE Puhe, one of the major nationwide radio stations run by the Finnish Broadcasting Company — we talked half an hour about urban art, the problematic relationships between “art” and “politics” and of course about YOYO – You are On Your Own and URB 14 Festival. The radio discussion was conducted in Finnish but YOYO will be performed in English — hope to see you on 3.8./4.8./5.8.!!
