    Det finns en föreställning om vad 1980-talet är som bottnar i att decenniet i mångt och mycket inom all kultur – musik, konst, film – kommit att definieras utifrån det som hände efter 1985, i en tid av växande finansmarknad, stigande bostadspriser och börs, biltelefoner, utsvävningar och alla möjligheter med trummaskiner. Men när 1980-talet börjar hänger mörka skuggor över tiden. Slutet av 1970-talet var en tid som bar på många besvikelser i det till synes fullbordade folkhemmets spår. Ett välfärdsbygge tycktes stå klart men klasskillnaderna och segregationen ökade. Här finns också en värld som bär på ett hot om ett kärnvapenkrig, av upprustning och kamp mellan öst och väst. Tanken tycks uppstå, kanske är det här decenniet som kan fixa detta. Om efterkrigstidens modernism djärvt slungat sig ut i den internationella världen, i en nyvunnen frihet, självsäkert hävdat gränsernas upplösning, samma överallt, den gemensamma utgångspunkten, den praktiska bostaden, det strama formspråket, det industriella byggandet, så blir 1980-talet när det börjar en vändning inåt, mot traditionerna, mot det lokala, mot gemenskapen, tryggheten, och med blicken vänd mot den gamla historien. Ett decennium som i en svart-vit värld sökte paradoxerna, som till en början med uppriktigt allvar vill ge plats för fler olikheter – en större mångfald, bostäder för alla – och som på vägen upptäckte valfriheten. Ett decennium som önskade det som var nära, och i skuggan av det moderna projekt började söka i historien. I Upplands Väsby söker man gemenskapen på små glasade gårdar. I Berlin flödar fantasin och flamboyansen när paret Baller börjar fylla i den gamla stadens luckor med PUNK SOLAR NYFUTURISTISK ART NOUVEAUX. Det är kritisk rekonstruktion, det är organisk brutalism, det är uppbruten vitalism, det är det postmoderna språkets sökande efter former. Det hände som en del av IBA 1979-1987, en bostadsutställning som var en forskning, en undersökning och ett byggande. IBA skulle ersätta 1970-talets stadsbyggnadspolitik, med motorvägsplaner, slumsanering, rivningar och istället använda den gamla staden som inspiration och byggmaterial. I Jönköping bygger man bensinmackar som vill vara flygplatser. Och överallt ligger innerstäderna och väntar på att återupptäckas. Och pionjärerna – förtrupperna – är husockupanter som bygger vardagliga utopier och fastighetsmagnater som nolltaxerar. Välkomna till 1980-talet.

    Sayre Quevedo is a producer at VICE. “I'm not like a cinephile at all but in a movie nobody says, ‘And then he revealed to me a deep, dark secret.' You discover the deep, dark secret as the main character is learning it. And I just feel like there's something so much more engaging for me as a listener to feel like I'm discovering at the same time as the person who's doing the reporting than feeling like you're just describing the process of discovery. I just need things to feel like they did in real life. I don't want to recreate things."

Gig Workers, driver's for app companies such as Lyft and Uber, are struggling during COVID-19. They're considered essential workers, so they can still work but many of them aren't making enough to cover rent. Many have chosen to stay home, facing economic insecurity. Those who work, however, are continuing to drive without much protection in the way of personal protective equipment, and very little help from the app companies themselves. We take a look at the future of the gig economy and how to protect "essential workers."

Pete Stollery is an electro-acoustic composer living in Scotland and he sees this as a rare moment to listen to the noises the world makes in lockdown and to create a living archive of the moment we're in.

    Post-mortems credit the radio broadcasts as key to the success of the U.S.’s psychological warfare campaign against Árbenz. Though the CIA destroyed its records from the Florida station where broadcasts were planned, and claimed to not have recordings of the broadcast reels, a Freedom of Information request sent by Time magazine reporter Stephen Schlesinger in the 1970s may have inadvertently led to the broadcast reels being preserved and shelved away for decades. We found tape recordings of those reels in 2020. See here for more details. https://www.snowmedia.com/liberation/behind-the-scenes
