Event: Thursday 22nd November – Radio self-portrait by Anna Raimondo

What are we speaking about when we talk about radio self- portraits? What are its basic elements? Is it up to the artist and their intention – rather than the audience and their listening – to define it?

Visual art history defines an art-work as a self-portrait. However, in sound and radio art, as the tradition is still relatively young we are invited to question the genre of self-portraits.

The artist in the radio gives up their body and enters into a sound space where the listening re-gives volume to their presence, identity, desires and thoughts.

Join Anna for a selection of clips from generations of artists from Europe, Canada and Africa, ranging from soundscapes to the spoken word, from experimental radio shows to radiophonic music.
