OPEN CALL for ELEONORE summer residency 2016
*/RADIO ACTIVE – SINK and SWIM with Eleonore/*
August 1 – September 11, 2016
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.
