The work is scheduled to be broadcast Thursdays over the course of seven weeks at set times during the day, and will feature photographs, videos and interviews that are meant to be “responses” to the impulses behind the week’s news events. To complete the picture, an interactive website devoted to additional “responses” will be accessible online.
