Mobile Radio live at SAVVY Funk for documenta 14


Design: Laurenz Brunner

From midnight on the 16th July, the live documenta radio project Every Time A Ear di Soun swings round to Berlin for SAVVY Funk.
Mobile Radio’s contribution is a radio series called Render. It consists of two parts: a prerecorded morning show (Render: Radiaphiles), and a live afternoon show (Render: live).

In Render: Radiaphiles, Mobile Radio offer an overview of independent and not-for-profit community, ‘free’, campus, and pirate stations who provide a wealth of material and perspectives outside of the mainstream media orthodoxy. This series constitutes a major retrospective of the work of the radio art network Radia, whose collective mission is to make radio that transcends the borders and boundaries of land and language. Mobile Radio visit each station in turn to discern their motives and inspirations, and explore the work of one of their associated artists. Produced with support from Goethe Institut.
In Render: live, a treasure trove of personal archives will be opened for artistic exploration. Every day Mobile Radio will delve deep into a collection of artefacts and memories and render them into radiophonic form. Expect cassettes, minidiscs, vinyl, tape and conceptual works smothered in the hiss of time. Featuring special guests along the way.

Broadcasting from June 17 – July 7, 8:15–9:00 and 14:10–15:00 (UTC+2)
