[Nettime-nl] Radiodays in De Appel


>  1 - 30 april 2005
>
> RADIODAYS
>
> Opening Friday, April 1, 2005, 15:00 - 20:00, concert and afterparty 
> at 21:00 www.radiodays.org (digital press release and images available 
> to download)
>
>  RADIODAYS is 26 days of live radio broadcast from De Appel, both on 
> 107,4 FM in the area of Amsterdam as well as via web-stream on 
> www.radiodays.org. The project is intended as a platform for 
> contemporary art and life: sound-based artworks, storytelling, music, 
> interviews or media-intervention. As an aural experience, as an 
> exhibition connecting distant places, confront opinions, and challenge 
> relations between participants and audience. What happens when 
> observers become listeners?
>
>  There are several reasons for using radio instead of a gallery space. 
> Radio offers a creative resistance to the retinal spectacle that 
> surrounds us. Radio is also a strong tool for connecting people and 
> bridging distances. Comparing with visual media, the radio space is 
> more capable of challenging the capitalist sphere of interest, which 
> is largely based on the visual spectacle. Closing ones eyes could 
> therefore be seen as an act of civil disobedience.
>
>  A singing exhibition, a city walk, a ghost talk about phantoms, a 
> radio play, a sound performance or a sound track of a video... from 
> Saâdane Afif to Artur Zmijewski - more than sixty international 
> artists are invited to make the RADIODAYS programme happen. Artists, 
> art critics, curators, musicians and DJs will come to De Appel to 
> discuss, to perform or to broadcast a new work.
>
>  Through April, every day (except on Mondays) the audience is invited 
> to come to De Appel from 4 pm to 9 pm. The visitors can take part in a 
> discussion, listen to a talk or a DJ set in the radio studio designed 
> by the French artist Laurent Grasso (with the collaboration of Pascal 
> Grasso) - or read a book on the subjects of the RADIODAYS programme in 
> the archive created by Association Apsolutno.
>
>  Since some visual artists are invited to create a sound based work 
> for the first time, the project reflects on the relationship between 
> visuality and non-visuality and wants to stimulate the listener's 
> imagination. Broadcasted live from inside De Appel, the project aims 
> to materialize an audience at different places: a live audience at De 
> Appel, but also the listener at home, in the car, on the mobile phone, 
> wherever a radio is at hand.
