Radio Calling: Live Radio Performances, broadcast from TENT, Rotterdam, Sunday 15 December 2013, 1-3pm GMT (2-4pm CET)
The rise of internet streaming, podcasts, and online platforms, seems to have informed a remarkable resurgence in the interest of radio for artists. The Radio Calling weekend event explores in a mini-symposium, masterclasses, and live radio performances, radio as a tool, platform, and medium for contemporary art.
Sunday's live radio performances, presented and recorded in front of an audience, include Jonas Lund, Koen Taselaar and Remco Torenbosch and proposals by Dóra Benyó & Pia Louwerens, Yoana Buzova & Max Dovey, Rosa Sijben & Bas van Wieringen, Helen Flanagan, Kathrin Grenzdörffer and Claire van Lubeek selected through the open call.
This will be followed by a performance by Rotterdam-based artist Jay Tan, broadcast live from Camden Arts Centre as part of their residency collaboration with TENT.
On Friday 13 December Radio Calling began with an afternoon symposium on current radio projects in art and concluded with the premiere of artist Jeremy Evans?s radio adaptation of his performance on the impact of the Internet on the persistence of myths and the way we tell stories. Evans is in Rotterdam as part of the TENT and Camden Arts Centre collaboration.
