International Radio Art Festival
1st to 30th October 2016
Halle (Saale), Germany
Radio as a multi-faceted art form will be presented at a four-week festival, which will take place in October 2016 in Halle (Saale) in Germany. 70 artists from 17 countries will present contemporary radio art at 15 locations in the city in the form of installations, performances, concerts and interventions. On air, the festival will broadcast on the FM frequency 99.3 MHz in Halle. 35 radio stations across the world will relay parts of the programme, and Resonance Extra in Brighton (UK) will take it over entirely.
The festival will feature artistic works ranging from the opening performance event of the award-winning Resonance Radio Orchestra (UK), to individual daily encounters with the artist Marold Langer-Philippsen (SK). A performance by Alessandro Bosetti (IT) will take place in cooperation with Deutschlandradio Kultur. The festival programme features performances and installations by pioneers of radio art such as Joyce Hinterding (AU), Tetsuo Kogawa (JN), and Gregory Whitehead (US). The team of curators comprises radio artists Knut Aufermann, Anna Friz and Sarah Washington, the editor of ORF Kunstradio Elisabeth Zimmermann and the programme coordinator of Radio Corax Ralf Wendt.
