Das experimentelle Radio an der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar | UKW 106.6 MHz


PERFORMING SOIL was developed by the artists Silke kleine Kalvelage and Jan Georg Glöckner, together with the curator/cultural mediator Marcel Hörler. In April, May and June they invited different collaborators from the fields of music, visual arts, textile design, organic farming, performance and dance to three sessions at Vogelherd, a nature reserve in Lichtensteig, St. Gallen.

The different aspects of the earth, such as cross-species collaborations, world-building, earth as filter/archive/life-base are links between the collaborators and at the same time a basis for discussion. Current science methods assume that projects can be scaled. That means that an experiment has to work on a small scale as well as on a large scale. However, this ignores the fact that the actors can change through encounters. The repeatability of the scientific method is opposed to the unrepeatability and the dogma of novelty of the artistic method. Against the background of these considerations, a simple recording studio in a roofed outdoor space served as a place of encounter and negotiation.
