In the course of Ars Electronica’s big concert night at Post City Ö1 Radiokunst - Kunstradio will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a two hours long live broadcast on September 10th from 22:05 – 24:00 in the framework of the Ö1 Kunstsonntag on Österreich 1 the cultural channel of the Austrian National Radio (ORF). Ö1 Kunstradio was founded in 1987 by Heidi Grundmann as a weekly space for radio-art, in 1995 Kunstradio Online – kunstradio.at was founded by a group of artists.
Ö1 Kunstradio and the Ars Electroncia festival can look back on a long history of conceiving and realising innovative networked radio art projects like Horizontal Radio in 1995, Rivers&Bridges in 1996, Sound Drifting in 1999 or Radiotopia in 2002. And already in 1989 the first “Long Night of Radio Art” took place in the framework of the Ars Electronica festival, which many others followed in the course of the last decades. This year Ö1 Kunstradio together with the Anton Bruckner University and the Ars Electronica festival is organising the Sonic Saturday symposium “Different Places” on September 9th 2017. Some of the participants like Andres Bosshard and Anna Friz will perform on site and on air, also Kristen Roos joins in for the Ars Electronica’s big concert night on September 10th, celebrating together with other artists and theorists 30 years of radio art on Ö1 Kunstradio.
