radio. history. media archaeology.

first with an attempt to re-enact the beginnings of radio as public cultural medium, a.o. in hommage a.o. à Clément Ader's invention of the théâtrophone.

"Yet another annoying piece of radio art? In the beginning there was the paraphrase. Starting from the search for radio art events to be reproduced we ended up looking into landmarks of radio history in connection with art – hopping from its beginnings to the digital turn.
Listen to a simulation of history and how it is digged out of its holes." [K.F.]

a radia show by Kristina Fromm, Lale Rodgarkia-Dara, Fiona Steinert; supported by Barbara Kaiser, Karl Schönswetter, Sara Norris, Christine Schörkhuber und Judith Purkarthofer. find out more about this show at www.radia.fm.

afterwards we'll take a trip to the zone. no no man's land. but nevertheless lost. joining an expedition with no return:

"three friends search for an ominous radio station that transmits number sequences with mysterious messages. told is the expedition’s story through an area bearing names such as 'path of the invisible hand', 'stalin highlands' or 'post-modernist cave labyrinth'.
the characters – student, entrepreneur, skilled worker – lose their life or at least get lost under unpleasant circumstances…" [F.H.]

history exhaustion is the audio transformation of an installation francis hunger created in 2009, focussing on the subject of 'verausgabung' (exhaustion).
with the voice of richard cotter.
the radio show is a contribution by radiator x for radia art radio network, produced and broadcasted for the first time in august 2010.
