Pirate/Public – positions in contemporary radio art / Positionen aktueller Radiokunst

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 But these clear distinctions are no longer valid in today’s radio landscape.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? 

Pirate/Public invites you to explore these and other questions on four evenings at Errant Bodies Sound Art Space.


Was unterscheidet den Piraten vom Kaperer? Nicht die Tat, sondern die Befugnis. Nur der Kaperer (engl. privateer), der scheinbar aus purem Eigensinn handelt, ist qua Dokument auch dazu befugt. Die Geschichte des Rundfunks ist eng mit derjenigen des Seerechts verquickt, was sich unter anderem auch in den verwandten Organisationsformen niederschlägt. Das Radio und seine öffentlich-rechtlichen, privaten sowie piratistischen Ableger. Diese klaren Abgrenzungen gelten jedoch in der aktuellen Radiolandschaft nicht mehr. Durch Internet, Podcast und Webarchive verschieben sich inhaltliche Kategorien, Sendegebiete, Zuhörerschaften und Zuständigkeiten. Bleibt die Frage, ob und wie und vor allem was gekapert wird? 

Pirate/Public widmet sich an vier Abenden diesen und anderen Fragen und lädt dazu in den Errant Bodies Sound Art Space ein.
