(Foyer + Schaufenster am Hofgarten + Website)
In April 2015, Felix Flemmer and Leonard Bauer founded Radio 80000 – a non-commercial online radio from Munich. It functions as a platform, promoting collaboration and cultural expression through music and events. Currently more than 80 contributors regularly broadcast shows from Munich, Berlin, Cologne, and Hamburg. At Radio 80000, established and emerging musicians and artists, as well as music enthusiasts without any professional ambitions, engage in what has become an intensive exchange – offering a unique selection of timeless and contemporary music. With the aim of presenting the music scene as comprehensively as possible and in all its facets, Radio 80000 is of particular versatility, openness, and musical quality. Since its foundation, the platform has developed into a large musical network that unites creative people, seeks dialogue, and regularly leads to new collaborations between artists and music labels.
In December, Radio 80000 and its studio will move completely into the space of Kunstverein München, occupying the Foyer, the Schaufenster am Hofgarten and the website. Connecting the local and the global, they will network and share programming with similarly independent radio stations from various parts of the world, including Browne Hill Radio (Lagos, NG), Dublin Digital Radio (Dublin, IE), Internet Public Radio (Guadalajara, MX), Kiosk Radio (Brüssel, BE), KMAH Radio (Leeds, GB), LYL Radio (Lyon, FR), Na Manteigna Radio (São Paulo, BR), Netile (London, GB),No Fun Radio (Vancouver, CA), Noods Radio (Bristol, GB), Norrm (Bandung, ID), Radio Beirut (Beirut, LB), Radio Isanganiro (Bujumbura, BI), Radio Bollwerk (Bern, CH), Radio Raheem (Mailand, IT), Shanghai Community Radio (Shanghai, CN), Teder.FM (Tel Aviv, IL), Test.FM (St. Petersburg, RU), Quantica (Lissabon, PT), 20ft (Kiev, UA), among others, and play music across different time zones, thereby establishing long-term collaborative possibilities for the future.
Radio 80000 has curated a unique live music and radio program for Kunstverein München, which can be heard on the website of Kunstverein München and Radio 80000, and experienced in the foyer of Kunstverein München daily from 10am to 10 pm.
For this purpose, the ground floor of Kunstverein München will be converted into an 'open studio' in order to create an adequate space for listening and discussion that is open to the public. This serves as a rare opportunity to gain insight into the practice of contemporary radio making, which in recent years has grown into an important medium of global exchange and musical networking, especially online.
Every day different authors are invited to write down their experiences and to reflect on this event in a subjective and individual way. Subsequently, a publication will be produced which will make this cultural and musical exchange comprehensible.
