Radio as Art

Concepts, Spaces, Practices

Edited by Anne Thurmann-Jajes, Ursula Frohne, Jee-Hae Kim, Maria Peters, Franziska Rauh, and Sarah Rothe

Transcript-Verlag

Acoustic signals, voice, sound, articulation, music, and spatial networking are dispositifs of radiophonic transmission. They have brought forth a great number of artistic practices. Up to and into the digital present radio has been – and still is – employed and explored as an apparatus-based structure as well as an (alternative) model for performance and perception. This volume investigates a broad range of aesthetic experiments with the broadcasting technology of radio. It also sheds light on the use of radio as a means of disseminating artistic concepts and on questions of mediation of this art form.
