THE TEMPORARY RADIO - For fresh air and a world with less walls

THE TEMPORARY RADIO FOR FRESH AIR AND A WORLD WITH LESS WALLS was a temporary radio station transmitting live on 98.7 FM in Århus from Kunsthal Aarhus in the period from 1 / 3 / 4 / 5 th of May 2013.

The project is an artistic construction site that seeks to bring fresh air to utopian ideas. Different contributions by a collective of international artists circle around the questions: What do we want and what can we do? An attempt to transgress the visible and invisible walls between the fragile, the political, between art and life. The project is initiated and organized by Louise Vind Nielsen.

  • "Utopia is nothing without it's counterpart - One man's dream is the other man's nightmare. But the dream is not enough. We need a state of "the Ideal", that is the place where dreams fullfill your needs, rather than setting you off after the next dream hunt, searching for something you think you want."

    Jaani Reismann set the scenes for a small interdimentional journey, with a handfull of neatly chosen vinyls, for a trip between utopia and dystopia, attempting to explore territories of dreams and break down boundaries and walls.

    "We need less walls - more than ever - the truth is that the reason we seek the "Ideal" - is because we find ourselves in the latter counterpart of the ideal. Man does not know, what he really want's. As long as the "know- ing" we here speak of is of a cognitive or physical nature - the human will never find what he wants. The only way to reach what you want is through feeling. But then you will see, that what you want is not what you want, but that it is what you need and what is necessary! - and when the pittifull hu- man discoveres that, he/she can begin the patient ascent reaching, what he/she needs."

    " ... when we reach that state of abundance in necessities... and every- thing is quiet in the mind... there's nothing left to do - but to do - what - you - want - to?"
