Radio_Copernicus is a German-Polish artist radio, which opens the medium radio for any artistic work, as long as it understands radio as an aesthetic and creative activity. The artist radio thinks of itself as an independent and transnational experiment focussing on artistic and cultural innovations within the range of electronic media and digital culture.
What is happening to radio, if artists get hold of it?
Radio_Copernicus tries to answer this question in various ways and thereby avails itself of music, spoken word, radio play and acoustic media art. The superordinate focus of the program is URBANITY in order to emphasize the innovative artistic and cultural scenes of the respective regions, from where Radio_Copernicus broadcasts. In accordance with the German-Polish Year 2005/06, Radio_Copernicus takes a binational perspective, which is based on a common European identity.
