Special: Curated by RADIA: und ein und aus by Barbara Kaiser

The last part of Radia’s series for Kunstradio’s „Curated by“ is a work by Vienna based artist Barbara Kaiser. She puts the intimate and nearly silent physical act of breathing in contrast to the vast metal cylinder of the Gasometer in Oberhausen, where a 48-hours-workshop was held this summer.

Radia, a network of independent radio stations and radio artists in Europe and beyond, has invited eight people to spend time together in the industrial monument. From the material that was recorded and produced there, the artists have created five pieces. Each very different, they share the experience of the Radio Art Camp in Oberhausen as well as the reference to the Gasometer.

„the basis for my piece are recordings of the participating artists breathing when climbing up the exterior staircase of the gasometer – 592 steps. on the other hand i use the acoustic frequences animated by playing back these sound in the interior of the building.“
