Transitional Societies

Mario Asef, Bernhard Draz, Sven Kalden, Georg Klein, Joachim Seinfeld

The exhibition Transitional Societies, initiated by NON in 2015,

accesses the discourse about ‚Transitional Justice‘, and transferres it

with freely associated aesthetic, but politically motivated positions

into a wider social context.

Pirate/Public – positions in contemporary radio art

What’s the difference between a pirate and a privateer? It’s not the

act, it’s the authority. Only the privateer – who seems to be acting

purely on his own initiative – has the papers authorizing him to do so.

The histories of broadcasting and maritime law are closely intertwined,

as we can tell from their similar forms of organization. Radio has its

public and private branches, and its pirate ones too. But these clear

distinctions are no longer valid in today’s radio landscape. Podcasts,

web archives and the internet have caused shifts in content types,

listening areas, audiences and jurisdictions. So is something being

commandeered? If so, how? And most importantly, what?
