Director Bernd Scherer on the program November/December
twenty-first-century humans are constantly “broadcasting.” One hundred years ago, the radio began to completely change our listening habits without our being very aware of it. So now we’re asking: What does the ear know? The Radiophonic Spaces project revolves around aesthetic and political questions of listening knowledge in a present-day shaped by the visual. Visually, the exhibition Humanity at Work explores the question of how humane the current world of work is. Are we only measured by the work we do? Then, what sets us apart from robots? The sixth edition of Technosphärenklänge also explores this question by acoustically staging the relationship between humanity and machines in concerts and performances. Join me in looking forward to the year ending with more—or less—dangerous games.
