KIOSK:RADIO:KIOSK - documenta memory: was bleibt?
Meanwhile documenta 14 has ended. As always, a lot has been said and a lot has been written. There is still some rumble – but that will soon sober down. And the next edition will be prepared. So the circle goes on and on. However, that's why we want to hold on for a moment to ask: what will remain?
KIOSK:RADIO:KIOSK - documenta special : GUNSTdocumenta 1997-2017 - 20 Jahre radio x * GUNSTradio 20 Years
In September radio x is celebrating its 20th birthday – for in September 1997, we got our official broadcasting licence and our stable local fm frequency. And from this very first month onwards GUNSTradio has been a regular monthly show on radio x. Thus we are happily taking part in the jubilee – and we are honoured to be invited to contribute to radio x' special birthday programme, two weeks of live radio broadcasted from the wonderful *saasfee-pavillon.

KIOSK:RADIO:KIOSK - Karten Lesen | Reading Cards
The last GUNSTradio show of the year sees miss.gunst reading cards. Don't worry: We won't urge you to take part in a lecture on cartography. Nor we're going to dive into cartomancy – at least not as you use to know it…
aut(h)o(r)-poetry radia #450: the death of the authors + radia #187: les forteresses du ciel
ever heard about the death of the author? sure, for there is an ongoing debate in literature studies. however, in a culture traditionally reading authorship and copyright together, there's also a very profane, yet tremendously important reason to literally remember the date: for this one counts (again, literally) for counting towards the day the work will become accessible for the public domain.
hospitals radia #437: electric blue + radia #40: dead by dawn
from birth to death most people will rather avoid hospitals – except for they are working there or come for a visit. yet the hospital is a place where many lifes begin – and end. so does this radio hour.
2/5 BZ radia #397: istanbul courthoustep + radia #86: no exotic cocktailcore
news istanbul, provided by an expert in using radio and pop music as critical tools.
geschichte machen (zur zeit) | making history (in time)
history is made. images are made. history is made with/in images. but how and at what costs? and what is the impact of our perception of time?
miss.gunst muses about these and other questions, looking at works presented in the exhibition "Making History", on show at Museum für Moderne Kunst, MMK Zollamt and at Frankfurter Kunstverein as part of Ray 2012.
"geschichte machen | making history" is part of the series TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO.
TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is radio on time.
since summer 2010, TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is one of the active mechanisms of the TIME BENDING CLOCK, a research project and tool looking at alternate theories and practices of measuring time, operating at the intersections of art, media, cultural history and the history of science.
find out more about the TIME BENDING CLOCK by visiting the TIME BENDING CLOCK WORK.
Like TIME BENDING CLOCK, TIME BENDING CLOCK RADIO is part of the TIME INVENTORS' KABINET (TIK).
The TIME INVENTORS' KABINET is a collaborative artistic research project at the intersections of ecology, art, and media,
taking an ecological approach to observing patterns in time and time control systems.

The playlist will follow soon! Thank you for your patience.
miss.gunst wishes to thank all artists and labels for having done and doing great work
PLAYGROUND : ART GAMES von | by miss.gunst (radia #243)
join miss.gunst on the playground and enjoy a set of games playing with the rules of art!
sonata dawn radia #239 morsonata + radia #40 dead by dawn
a sonata in two movements.
both rather dark.
however, the first one is take from live and about the living:
"Morsonata is the radia edit of a hour long live radio show produced by Mobile Radio for the FON festival in Barrow-in-Furness, England. With Barrow being home to Europe's biggest submarine shed and neighbouring Lake District having hosted Kurt Schwitters for the last years of his life we decided to combine these two influences. Schwitters' Ursonate performed in morse code by one of Barrow's retired submariners is the underlying thread to the show that includes live music and field recordings by FON artists in residence Haco, Susan Matthews, Sarah Washington and Knut Aufermann."
the second one, composed by tom wallace, deals with the dead, with
"clinical reports of people (mainly young drug abusers) who die whilst in hospital. The reading of their unfortunate medical histories is underscored with an electronic music composition made from hospital noises. The piece has been played once on Resonance fm, but was hidden in a larger programme due to the sensitiity of the theme." [T.W.]
miss.gunst would like to thank the following artists and sound collectors:
jovica for the space machine, corsica s for some beautiful radiator sounds;
haco, susan matthews, and mobile radio (knut aufermann and sarah washington) for their dark soata from barrow-in-furness;
tom wallace and resonance fm london for taking us on a trip with the dead;
as well as radia.fm radio art network for being a crowd of incredibly creative partners.
