While the death of radio as a mass medium is once again being predicted as imminent, recent developments in transmission technology underline what has long been evident: radio is not about the transmission of sound, but of signal. After over a century of innovation, appropriation, and mutation, radio is now being re-invented to become what it has essentially always been – a communications space in the widest possible sense.
In this volume, international artists, media theorists, art historians, and curators explore histories and concepts of radio and art – in a world where old and new notions of communication and distribution are converging in the vast radio network known as the cell phone.
