Expanded radio means that the medium of radio becomes connected to actions and settings that evolve around situations of listening, making radio or poetic metaphors of all four.

Datscha Radio 17 now extends its horticultural realm to different countries and continents inviting gardeners and listener to our:

­­International Garden Radio Listening Club [interGARLIC]

  • Do you enjoy free radio and find radio art exciting?
  • Do you have a garden, a green yard or a balcony, do you love to picnic in the park, or do you know of a nice green spot with internet connection?
  • Then register with your own International Garden Radio Listening Club!

In the 1920s, when the radio was a brand new medium, most people could not afford this modern technology. That’s why they formed listening communities and radio clubs. Occasionally , they even built the radios and antennas themselves. We want to revive this tradition of listening to the radio in the greenery.

Public Viewing was yesterday – 2017 Public Listening is en vogue !!!

Datscha Radio 17 is already collecting rain water, digging the soil over and sowing new sounds…. in order to be able to impregnate the ether with fabulous radio art in August. For this, the 5 ladies of the curatorial team connected to an electrified fennel and came up with a motto for each day of the festival:

Friday, 25th August: Hortus Politicus | The Political Garden
Saturday, 26th August: New Symbiosis | Plants, Fish and the Acoustic BBQ
Sunday, 27th August: Biotopes in Future Perfect | Life After the Abolition of Species
Monday, 28th August: Birds and Bees | Urban Gardening and Music For The Animals
Tuesday, 29. August: Subterranean Meditations | The Imaginary Garden

We will discuss, count rain drops and speak of bees and ants. We will savour radio streams from far away countries and fertilize the garden with sound collages. A more detailed programme schedule will be published soon. Go on now, ground your antennas and angle them towards Berlin-Rosenthal!
