25. – 29. August 2017

Plots & Prophecies | Parzellenprognosen

A five-day programme combining radio, gardening, hospitality and contemporary discourse in a live radio festival in a garden in the north of Berlin. Datscha Radio 17 uses radio as an artistic medium and as a source of inspiration and action. The process of radio making – otherwise quite a hidden event – becomes transparent in the winter garden of the house. Creative, interdisciplinary and open to everybody, Datscha Radio 17 transforms the privacy of the allotment garden intoa public space for art and communication. You are welcome to participate!

We broadcast from the 25th to the 29th of August 2017 !

With „Plots „and Prophecies“, Datscha Radio will take a look at the future of gardening, the links between biology and technology, and at the changing role of people in this world. Something has shifted in the old imbalance of flora and fauna … and we cannot be so sure that our present awareness will suffice to put these changes into a dialogue with the environment.

5 days = 5 themes

The Datscha radio garden assembles practitioners, gardeners and guests from various fields: music and performance, science and art, local and international.
Together we will trace and listen to the diverse voices, sounds, imprints and languages of the garden. We will broadcast in German and English, but there will be other languages to be heard as well.
