a transdisciplinary online-radio project
Against the background of a global pandemic, countless live streaming platforms emerged, providing an excess of options for expanded listening across the globe. We want to examine the potential and relevance of broadcasting in a contemporary media setting by connecting artists across the globe and across all disciplines. The surfacing of new contact zones — new spaces of encounter, of radical empathy, of careful listening — are at the center of this project. We are curious to examine and experience the entanglements of transmission, translation, and translocality.
The project takes place online. 11 Participants from Brazil, Colombia, Estonia, Germany, Kazakhstan and Switzerland located over three time-zones and a difference of 9 hours worked online together during 5 days to exchange and create a broadcasting programme of 48 hours:
(the broadcast starts at 00:00 Brazil time)
The detailed broadcast schedule as well as an introduction to the participating artists and their works will be made available on this website soon.
