AN INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM FOR RADIO ART 2017 — 2020
The Radio Art Residency was an international fellowship program for artistic practice in radio, hosted by the independent radio station CORAX in Halle (Saale) in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut. From 2018 — 2020 the Radio Art Residency invited artists from non-German-speaking countries to Halle (Saale) twice a year for a three-month working stay. With its programme, the fellowship specifically aimed to encourage artists to explore the medium of radio as an instrument of communication. Opening up the radio space and air time as a field for experimentation, the Radio Art Residency invited artists to develop their own distinctive radio works.
The fellowship was aimed at artists from various fields of acoustic and time-based art, who were each asked to delve into the narrative and technical qualities of the medium. The resulting radio works not only explored the medium of radio as a platform and instrument of sonic expression, but also as a medium of intervention and interaction.
Scholarship holders of Radio Art Residency: Argentinian sound artist Sol Rezza (2018), French performance artist Claire Serres (2018), Brazilian electronic artist and composer André Damião (2019), visual and performance artist Sara Hamdy (2019) from Egypt and the Kurdish composer Hardi Kurda (2020).
