A Garden Year on Air – Garden Cultures and Garten Art in Frankfurt, Rhein-Main and beyond
Gardens are images and imaginations you can walk through and touch, utopias growing in(to) real space. Of private as well as collective bliss, happiness and sanssouci. On the fertile grounds of everyday culture, cultural and art history we can also find the growth and thriving of new forms of gardening, nowadays especially in urban space.
During the Garden Year 2013 we want to attend and accompany these activities in our RadioGarden: month by month the RadioRhizomE will grow its antennas to monitor the related developments and to investigate the terrain.
A special focus will be set on the "New Lust for Green" ("Neu Lust auf Grün") to be observed – and eavesdropped – in Frankfurt am Main and the Rhein-Main area. From April to October 2013 we'll follow the motives and themes of the related programmes within the GartenRheinMain network, introduce projects and initiatives – and talk to the people active in the field.
Among these is the "Frankfurter Garten" currently planned to be installed on Danziger Platz in Frankfurt's eastern part, the Ostend. In cooperation with this project we want to grow the "Frankfurter Garden Radio" (Frankfurter Garten Radio) in our RadioGarden – as well as on site, provided that the "Frankfurter Garten" is going to be realized.
Moreover, as a follow-up to last year's collaboration with the Berlin based project, a new issue of Datscha-Radio is being planned for the summer.
RadioGarden is a format of GUNSTradio, produced and broadcasted at radio x Frankfurt am Main.
