radio narrowcast: tate modern

public event / performance / installation
tate modern 2016 

Radio Narrowcast, as opposed to Radio Broadcast, does not rely on a technologized, distanced and unidirectional one-to-many transmission. Instead a narrowcast can be seen as a site-specific and collaborative practice that derives from the method of listening and prioritises pragmatic concerns of a particular neighbourhood, group of people or individuals.

Questioning the functionality of the radio studio, opening it up and interchanging the roles between listeners and broadcasters, narrowcasts can include yet does not require radio technology or technology a priory. Accordingly, the radio transmission can be addressed as the overarching question of process, - agency and intentionality behind it: Who processes what for whom? What is the process? And to what end is it processed?

This particular Radio Narrowcast was developed in collaboration with Michele Fuirer, Emily Stone, Victoria Ivanova, Alexa Lowe, Age UK Lewisham & Southwark, Stones End Day Centre, Blackfriars Settlement and visitors of Tate Modern.
