The Radio Art Residency is an international fellowship programme for artistic practice on the radio. The residency is a joint project by the Goethe-Institut and Experimental Radio at Bauhaus-University Weimar in cooperation with Deutschlandfunk Kultur, Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of the World Cultures Berlin) and the University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar.
Once a year, the programme offers a two-month stay in Weimar for two artists from each of the regions South America, South Asia, Southeast Asia and Southern Africa.
In 2023 and 2024, the radio art residency is part of the overarching roof project “Listening to the World – 100 Years of Radio”: In this artistic research project, artists, scientists, media professionals and listeners from the different regions will address various questions about listening in its diversity and its transcultural interconnections.
The aim of the scholarship is to promote creative artistic work and to support the realisation of new artistic works that deal with the thematic focuses of the Listening to the World project.
During their two-month stay in Weimar fellows are invited to produce a piece on the below-mentioned questions and topics for the sound art broadcasting slot Klangkunst at Deutschlandfunk Kultur and to explore and transcend the boundaries of sound and radio art in interdisciplinary constellations, to be inspired by the intercultural dialogue at the Bauhaus University Weimar and the cultural and classical city of Weimar.
In addition, they will have the opportunity to gain a closer insight into and network of contemporary art in Germany and international sound and radio art in particular.
The fellowship is curatorially supervised and technically supported by Experimental Radio at Bauhaus-University Weimar.
