"Three Categories" is a collaborative radio performance featuring Dutch/Hungarian artist Dóra Benyó and the Belgo-German artist duo Office for Joint Administrative Intelligence (O.J.A.I.), composed of Chris Dreier and Gary Farrelly. Central to the piece are the declassified secret police files compiled after the surveillance of Benyó's grandfather, an academic and political activist during Hungary's communist era. The title of the work stems from the categories of loyalty to the state citizens were classified into at the time. Benyó's collaboration with O.J.A.I. reimagines the architecture of the state archive, transforming it into a conceptual space representing totalitarian overreach through the excessive production of knowledge. O.J.A.I. contributes to this transformation by creating paranoid organizational atmospheres, conveyed through a series of fictional texts and modular sound compositions. This radio performance is situated within the framework of Dóra Benyó's residency at ABA Air Berlin Alexanderplatz, generously supported by the Mondriaan Fund. Farrelly's practice is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.

ABA Air SALON is a radio format produced by Air Berlin Alexanderplatz, a Berlin based artist initiative dealing with the distribution and documentation of forms of collective and experimental knowledge production. The broadcasts come from different locations in Berlin where we organize salons. At these salons we meet with local actors, artists, scientists and other cultural producers to exchange around research based artistic projects and practices.
