Experimental Radio


The artistic practice of Experimental Radio included contemporary radio drama and media art, artistic radio features and sculptural versatile forms such as sound installations as well as artistic strategies of action, intervention, and cooperative work. Concerning the development of new technologies, Experimental Radio focused also on internet radio, streaming media, and novel transmission paths in the context of Open Source software and Wireless Culture.

I set up Experimental Radio when in 1999 I was appointed to Bauhaus-University and moved to Weimar, Thuringia. With my research and artistic practice I achieved the artistic tool Radio Station.

In 2007 the Experimental Radio was adapted to conventional German radio. Current address

Studio B11

Studio B11 was the first title of the Experimental Radio program at Bauhaus-University. The studio for that program was located in the Faculty of Media headquarters, called B11 after its street address Bauhausstr. 11.
