*Radio Insomnia*
7-9 July 2023 - Tiohtià:ke/Montréal
A dilation of night and a tightening of the ear

Radio Insomnia is an ephemeral radio station for insomniacs and 
nocturnal communities, that explores the poetic and political aspects of 
wakefulness and insomnia. What is the potential of night-time radio when 
wakefulness is embraced rather than endured? Can we listen "with" 
insomnia, rather than fight against it for productivity? Why loosen the 
grip on insomnia when we can tighten our ear?

Broadcast live from 9 pm to 6 am, programs unfold over two nights until 
6 am, with performed works by Montreal-based artists, sonic artworks and 
discussions with special guests who explore the social implications of 
wakefulness at night: chrono-normativity, solitude and isolation, 
intimacy, the poetic experience of dilated time and the reappropriation 
of nocturnal time in public space.

Radio Insomnia is a collaboration between French curator Anabelle 
Lacroix and radio artist Nicolas Montgermont. The project is created 
during a residency and as a public program that responds to the 
exhibition InSomnolence developed by The Sociability of Sleep research 
group at McGill University and Université de Montreal, as the result of 
two years of research and creation activities supported by the 
Government of Canada’s New Frontiers in Research Fund (NFRF).

Radio Insomnia is supported by the University of New South Wales, Sydney 
and the Consulate General of France in Montréal.
