1st to 30th October 2016 Halle (Saale), Germany


Radio Revolten - International Radio Art Festival


Radio as a multi-faceted art form will be presented at the four-week Radio Revolten festival, which takes place until the end of October 2016 in Halle (Saale) in Germany. 70 artists from 17 countries will present contemporary radio art at 15 locations in the city in the form of installations, performances, concerts and interventions. On air, the festival will broadcast on the FM frequency 99.3 MHz in Halle and MW 1575. 35 radio stations across the world will relay parts of the programme, and Resonance Extra in Brighton (UK) will take over the radio programme entirely.

Many of the festival performances will take place in the evenings at the Radio Revolten Club at Rathausstra├če 3. Next door at number 4, Radio Revolten will host the exhibition Das Grosse Rauschen: The Metamorphosis of Radio, presenting cutting edge installations over two floors. A short distance away at the City Museum there will be a companion exhibition 'Invisible Waves' - The history of broadcasting and the attempt at its appropriation in Halle (Saale). The conference Radio Space is the Place will be held at the University of Halle. Other Radio Revolten venues include the Botanical Garden, the Hausmann's Towers and Red Tower of the market square and the Moritzburg Art Museum.

Radio Revolten is run by Radio Corax and co-hosted by the city of Halle (Saale). The German Federal Cultural Foundation is the main sponsor of the festival. The team of curators comprises the radio artists Knut Aufermann, Anna Friz and Sarah Washington, the editor of ORF Kunstradio Elisabeth Zimmermann and the programme coordinator of Radio Corax Ralf Wendt. Radio Revolten will be the largest and most comprehensive festival of radio art ever to be held worldwide.
