… the garden does not like to stay outdoors…

Gabi Schaffner talks to Hans Kellett about the day to come. Matthew Burnett watches over the faders of the mixer, which he will not take his eyes off of for the whole day.

At noon…

… The Hidden Story Singers enter the studio to start the radio program with feminist power.

Three curators in intimate conversation

Such heavy charms cause the stream to give up which has to be revived several times on that very day.

The only cure is to take away the colour and picture the garden in black and white.

Dirk HülsTrunk talks to Shanti Suki about white noise, black blocks and gray word weed in the gaps between the lawn and outdoor tiles.

In our first Surprise Minuit the Datscha Crew gathers around the Datscha bonfire, an old gramophone that warms us up with culinary jazz classics.

 

For the upcoming four days we promise to pick up the plain and unspectacular sounds on the edges of perception. And we will fix the stream. Promise!

Datscha Radio 17 is getting ready: Artist Hans Kellett has already taken a probe of the electric whispers  of the potatos, and the printer is set up to receive and translate their secret conversations. Many many things have been transported to the Datscha, the studio is furnished and the flag is flying. There is a tent to shelter us from any rain and today’s surprise: We got an extra fridge!!!! We hear us tomorrow at 12!

They do have something to tell!

The garden has always been a mirror of social conditions and power structures. And as diversified a society might be as varied are its gardens. On this day, Hortus Politicus, we’ll examine the existing multiplicities, get to the bottom of them, shed some light, question them and allow them to be heard.

The only radio art festival with garden atmo: indeed.

And so it is said, on the morning of the Seventh Day the Garden of Eden was planted. Whether it really existed or not, we will never know. We still dream of paradise gardens. And in our own gardens we seek and find little pieces of happiness. But for how much longer?
At the close of the Anthropocene, characterized by climate change and the sixth wave of the extinction of species, this biotop of ours will not be spared. Indeed it is likely to become completely lost. Could the much acclaimed advancement, this ‘progress through technology’ as coined by Audi, provide us with a remedy? Or will green life still exist in special zones, where humans are denied entry? What will the gardens of the future look like? We invite you to an acoustic day trip to Biotope Future II.

The Datscha garden never looked as good as this before: The lawn edges aligned to central perspective (baroque!), the wintergarden orderly, the plots free from weeds with crumbly earth, the gutters functional again…  and the rose rejoices and looks up at the clear evening sky.

“subbotnik”

  1. Subbotnik (from Russian: [sʊˈbotə] for Saturday) were days of volunteer unpaid work on weekends following the October Revolution.
  2. My indestructable thanks go to Gero, Helen, Mathias, Tiger und Tina!!!!!! You are so great!
    Your Datscha garden lady.

0-1 am

In the hour after midnight we’ll let ourselves be surprised… We’ll listen to the songs of the nightingale, to the whispering roots, to the wind in the trees and flower talk. We’ll converse, ponder on past and future dreams, have surprise guests and maybe even improvised concerts.

Editors: Datscha team
