AN INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM FOR RADIO ART
Radio Art Residency is a cooperation between Radio CORAX and the Goethe-Institut, which makes international activities in the young art genre of radio art visible and audible. Being the first fellowship program of its kind throughout Europe, the Radio Art Residency gives artists from abroad the opportunity to work for a period of three months in the free Radio CORAX in Halle (Saale), Germany.
Radio artists, performance artists with a connection to sound and radio, and sound artists are invited to explore narrative and technical possibilities of the medium of radio and to present their own approach to the medium “on air”. The radio is not only an exhibition space for acoustic art works, but provides a space for experimentation.
Radio CORAX is a non-commercial local radio that can be received on the FM frequency 95.9 MHz in the Halle (Saale) area and via live stream 24 hours a day. With about 100 regular transmissions Radio CORAX is the biggest non-profit radio in East-Germany. Radio CORAX has long experience in hosting conferences, festivals and workshops. The radio is an active contributor in national and international community media networks.
In 2016 Radio CORAX hosted the International Radio Art Festival Radio Revolten. With the Radio Art Residency Radio CORAX is continuing its engagement with the medium radio as a space and laboratory for artistic processes.
