Datscha Radio Logo


100 Tage Datscharadio was a research project supported by selected  authors, scientists, radio makers and sound researchers as well the artist group “Gärtnerpflichten”. Notes and protocols, recordings of the environment and interviews with the visitors of the garden show formed another part of the research.

This archive is being revised! Following this preliminary view of our posts is a list of the 2014 participants.

Instead of processing this data into scientific knowledge they were instantly broadcast via the medium of radio. A so-called “Audiokomposter” developed by Pit Schultz decomposed the material and turned it into a continually changing soundscape. This process of composting and decomposition found its poetic counterpoint in the untamed growth of  plants around the caravan. In August, a one-day festival  invited guests and visitors to further discussion and participation.

The art competition of the Landesgartenschau Gießen 2014 was supported by the Hessische Kulturstiftung, the BID Seltersweg and Förderverein Landesgartenschau Gießen.
