New podcast: conversation with radio activist, sound art and new media
artist Reni Hofmüller


In the 1990s, twenty minutes was all it took for local authorities in the
Austrian city of Graz to detect and neutralise any illegal radio
transmitter. Back then, Reni Hofmüller
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-317-reni-hofmuller> was part of a
group of activists who took over the airwaves with pirate broadcasts every
Sunday from the mountains surrounding the city. After short 18-minute
sessions, the Radio Dauerwelle team would pack up its equipment and clear
out, moments before the authorities arrived. In this podcast, Hofmüller
shares her early commitment with radio, as well as her obsession with
dismantling the invisible in order to understand and question it. A trip
through time that takes us from the 1980s to the present, through her
personal involvement in feminist discussions from the perspective of new
media. Our conversation is riddled with references to her commitment to
open source, to doing things together, to the uninhibited mixing of
disciplines, and to her passion for the electromagnetic sphere and bicycles.
