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.

“Radio Helsinki at Schaumbad [Bubble bath]”

Marold Langer-Phillipsen, Datscha garden Berlin

“ArchieArchive Is Listening”

ArchieArchive  will listen to the flowers, the grass family, the trees, the guests – will converse with everyone and later also with himself. ArchieArchive is the radio alter ego of Marold Langer-Philippsen and appears – expectedly and unexpectedly – in different radio stations and contexts as a short-term archivist who occupies the airwaves.

Marold Langer-Philippsen is a radio and media artist, director, performer, designer and musician active in the fields of time-based arts with a special emphasis on public space. He produced experimental radio works for public broadcasters (ORF / BR / EBU), Ars Electronica Linz (2002/2010) and for free radio stations around Europe.

Tetsua Kogawa, Japan

“Smelling Air Waves”

Do frequencies have a smell? Is a word also a wave? A stream of waves and words between the North of Berlin and Central Tokyo grows in poetical, trilingual exchange with the Datscha gardener.

His work according to “Radio Revolten”: Tetsua Kogawa cseems to identify himself as a nomad practioner of radioart or radiation art rather than his official titles of media critic and museum director. He has been challenging radical experiments of radio art using and exhibiting his invented devices in various cities of the world.

Program is subject to change. More details will follow. Stay tuned!
