We have just sent them to Paris: digital parcels of earth tones, bird calls, water trumpets and music for snails: on September 2, Datscha Radio will be part of the program of the JRM – the Jardin de Recherches Musicales, an annual micro-FM festival in Paris, organized by Dinah Bird and Jean-Philippe Renoult. An afternoon of sun, sound experiments, field recordings and performances on the disused small train line that runs through all of Paris …

And in Berlin?

Our archives are still broadcast … for another 11 days. Time for a stroll down to Schlegelstraße 6 and a good opportunity hang out and listen. Our loop lasts 9 hours and 36 minutes, which is the average number of night hours between the opening date of the show to the end of  RAUMOHNERAUM #3 .

The gallery is open:
Do – So, 2 – 7 pm

Still available:
Last jars of our Mole Jam
and copies of the 2017 Datscha Radio catalogue!

Online since today on the blog of the Goethe-Institut Munich: “Art through the ether”, a short narration of radio art history, written by Knut Aufermann. Datscha Radio is happy to be featured there in picture and sound (by and with Frieder Butzmann), in addition to a number of parallel projects and/or institutions promoting radio art. Auferman’s text gives the reader a good overview of the beginnings, alternative modes and various manifestations of this art practice, and it is a pleasure to read it!

Therefore here, not many words, but the link to the English version: https://www.goethe.de/en/kul/med/21324932.html


Knut Aufermann, born 1972, lives in Ürzig and works internationally as a radio artist, musician and organizer. Since 2005, he has worked with Sarah Washington under the project name Mobile Radio at events such as the 30th São Paulo Biennial and documenta 14.
