OPEN CALL for ELEONORE summer residency 2016

*/RADIO ACTIVE – SINK and SWIM with Eleonore/*

August 1 – September 11, 2016

Linz, Austria

In the winter of 2008-2009, the 100 year old Station Messschiff Eleonore 
was bought, adapted and docked by the Donautic team at the Danube harbor 
in Linz. Since 2009, Eleonore, once a survey vessel, has been powered by 
solar energy, equipped with *radio components and modified to host 
artists in residency. As part of Stadtwerkstatt’s cultural initiatives 
that focus on free/open culture and information technology, Eleonore 
declares itself an autonomous art ship gathering local and international 
residents for meetings, debates, research and lab works.

This summer, “/RADIO ACTIVE – SINK and SWIM with Eleonore”, /Eleonore’s 
residency 2016 opens its beds and decks to receive free flowing, 
temporal residents for special trans/MISSION daze/days in the Danube 
waterways. We call for transmit-ers, wave-surfers, code-breakers, 
swimmers, boat people, (un)wired creatures to brave the troubled waters, 
take on water as medium for transmission and expand on Eleonore’s 
**radio beacon project that started in 2011.

As an influential figure in underground radio art, Mini-FM, microradio, 
***Tetsuo Kogawa of Polimorphous Space has accepted our invitation as 
Eleonore’s honorable resident for this summer. We launch this open call 
with his recent statement-

“No more broad-casting; no more art-radio.

The point is transmission itself: radioart is radiation art.”

Recalling the sputnik satellite’s outer space broadcast of radio pulses 
in the fifties, we invite artists of the world to be part of an 
autonomous radionetwork - transmit a signal once a day at the frequency 
of 7.067 MHz, an SSTV signal with senseless content.

The spectrum is set free. Ride the waves and dive into the Danube.

****Check in with us for a drop by and short stay residency on the Eleonore.


Eleonore artist in residency is a Stadtwerkstatt’s project.
