A Garden in the Air
Berlin-Rosenthal, August 24-31, 2012

A garden is more than a metaphor: Bridging architecture to nature, it is a living space for visions and encounters, for work and leisure. The garden has been a companion to mankind in all cultures since the beginning of civilization. With the onslaught of technologies of daily life, the topic of gardening has continually gained attention in terms of aesthetics, history and ecology. The true potential of the garden, though, lies within its rich multitudes. A garden is not just one place, it is many places; not just one system, but many systems. To create a garden for listening and international cooperation which appeals to all of the senses – this is the aim of Datscha-Radio.

What is Datscha-Radio?

Datscha-Radio is a temporary micro-broadcasting station set up on the grounds of the garden community "Einigkeit" ("Unity") in Berlin-Pankow.
Datscha-Radio is devoted to the topics of gardening and horticulture in the broadest sense.
Datscha-Radio is created by gardeners, artists and guests.
Datscha-Radio is free, non-commercial, and open to all.
Datscha-Radio is dedicated to intuitive performance, music and poetry.
Datscha-Radio links the site of the garden to the world.

For 7 days, 24 hours, from 24th to 31st of August, 2012, we will be broadcasting directly from a typical Berlin garden patch. Rain or shine!

Datscha-Radio was initiated by Gabi Schaffner.
The Datscha-Radio-Team: Gabi Schaffner (schaffnerin.net: project direction, editor & producer); Pit Schultz (reboot.fm, klubradio GmbH: technical direction/editor & producer); Wolfgang Kriener (technical assistance) ; Diana McCarty (reboot.fm: editor), Verena Kuni (GUNSTradio/radiator x: editor & producer).
