Leading art institutions such as Tate Modern, the São Paulo Biennial, and Documenta have now recognized that an ongoing artistic use of the airwaves has generated an autonomous genre called radio art.
Over the last few decades, independent radio stations in North America and Europe have provided crucial support for this art form to develop and flourish. In October 2016 the International Radio Art Festival Radio Revolten, organized by community radio station CORAX, brought together today’s radio artists in Halle (Saale) in Germany.
Radio Revolten featured a dedicated radio art station, installations, live performances, conferences, workshops, and public interventions. This book documents the world’s most extensive radio art festival, which presented community radio as an open-access medium for cultural use.
The first Radio Art Festival Radio Revolten took place in Halle in 2006 and was organized by community radio station CORAX.
