Visual art history defines an art-work as a self-portrait. However, in sound and radio art, as the tradition is still relatively young we are invited to question the genre itself.
What are we speaking about when we talk about radio self- portraits? Here the question opens toward a research on its possibilities rather than a statement about its definition.
What are its basic elements? Is it up to the artist and their intention – rather than the audience and their listening – to make it?
What happens in the radio, when the artist gives up their body and enters into a sound space where the listening re-gives volume to their presence, identity, desires and thoughts?
The listening session curated by Anna Raimondo proposes a panorama of contemporary audible art, inviting you to open your ears to a multiplicity of radiophonic-selves. It invites you to discover clips from generations of artists from Europe, Canada and Africa, ranging from soundscapes to the spoken word, from experimental radio shows to radiophonic music.
