Open studio: receive and transmit with artist Anton Kats and inhabitants of a retirement home

For the Mittlungsradio project, an artistic and collaborative format, artist Anton Kats explores and presents the voices and stories of residents at a senior citizen’s facility through workshops, radio interventions, and an installation. Using narrowcast radio, which has a limited transmission range, residents are invited to work hands-on with the medium of radio to develop their own mobile, open, and sustainable radio station and thus be part of the 10th Berlin Biennale program. The Mittlungsradio transmissions reflect on and address the themes of the 10th Berlin Biennale such as visibility and alternative knowledge transfer through the eyes of older people.
