Sounds- Radio – Art – New Music
February 13 – March 28, 2010
During the age of the historical avant-gardes, the arts formed a mutually enriching synthesis before the separation and specialization into individual disciplines set in during the 1930s. Radio was a place in which this interplay of the arts was attempted over and over, also against the dominance of the dialog-centered radio play. The exhibition project Sounds- Radio – Art – Neue Musik makes radio accessible as an artistic medium, and makes it possible to experience it in a spatial context. Based on the polyvocality of radio art and a fascination with the disembodied character that shaped the early years of radio, the exhibition opens surprising perspectives on radio art and its potential to create complex experiential spaces.
