RADIO EUROPA – UNDER CONSTRUCTION PART I: RADIO COLI. A VISUAL TRAVELING RADIO IN TIRANA

RadioZoli08Collaborative Partners
Mobile Albania, GbR, Offenbach, Germany, in cooperation with MIZA Galeri, Tirana, Albania

Project description
The artists from Mobile Albania und MIZA Galeri will place themselves next to a major construction site called Bulevardi in the center of Tirana with a radio station in order to get into conversations with people on the street about local issues with the help of an analogue traveling radio concept. The shift between the roles of being a transmitter and receiver is meant to create an alternative structure of communication and enable a self-determined discourse about essential questions: How do we want to live? What path is Albania taking? What is Europe’s path? The final radio program will also be transmitted in Budapest and Leipzig and will thus open up the dialogue to Europe. The works that are created will be documented and presented in an exhibition in Tirana and then later in Germany; afterwards, they will move on to other European cities.
