IdeasCity Radio

IdeasCity Radio is a collaboration between the New Museum's IdeasCity initiative and Clocktower. IdeasCity Radio’s premise is to exchange, discuss, share, and connect ideas and insights initiated during the IdeasCity Detroit and Athens programs. Hosting live conversations, interviews, and musical performances featuring Detroit and Athens Fellows, participants, and speakers, IdeasCity Radio will bridge the conversation on topics such as public art, social justice, and urban design from Detroit to Athens and vice versa. IdeasCity Radio is a public forum to engage, reflect, and interact for IdeasCity’s local and international community and offers a window into the initiation of ideas for the future of the city. IdeasCity Radio runs from September 10-24, 2016, and is broadcasted from Clocktower’s space at Pioneer Works in New York and the IdeasCity Athens site, the Athens Conservatory. For the full Athens schedule click: HERE IdeasCity Radio features: A live stream of the Public Conference in Athens with Yaşar Adanalı, John Akomfrah, Sophia Al-Maria, Tania Bruguera, Thomas Doxiadis, Rosanne Haggerty, dream hampton, George Prevelakis, Nick Srnicek, Hito Steyerl, Pelin Tan, among others.

The Alternative Art School Fair Radio

The Alternative Art School Fair at Pioneer Works presents an introduction to alternative art schools from around the US and the world, November 19-20, 2016. The entire event, including workshops, discussions, and keynote presentations by Carol Becker, Luis Camnitzer, Craig Wilkins and Dorothea Rockburne, will be streamed live and archived on clocktower.org. See the radio schedule below to plan your listening party. The live listening link can be found HERE. Art education is a reflection of social and cultural evolution; it engages with structures of meaning-making and considers different frameworks for experience. The impetus to create an alternative art school is rooted not only in a desire to create “better” art, but to create the conditions for greater freedom of expression. Often run as free, artist-run initiatives, the values and visions of alternative art schools vary widely in methodology, mission and governance. But even when they are relatively small in scale they provide vital models of cultural critique and experimentation. Listening Schedule: November 19 Keynote panel -- 12:00-1:30PM Carol Becker Luis Camnitzer Dorothea Rockburne Victoria Sobel Interviewer/Moderator: Catherine Despont

Venice Biennale

A series of talk and musical programs assembled from our various trips to Venice for the Biennale dating back to 2005. The programs range from round table discussions to interviews to DJ sets to virtual pavilions rendered in music and sound. On two occasions (2005 and 2007) we broadcast live on Italian FM radio from a boat moored near the Giardini. In 2011 our roving reporters covered the scene while the interview booth was headquartered near Piazzo San Marco. We also partnered with artist Federico Diaz and his sculpture-building robots at the Arsenale to design a special series called Robot Radio. 2013 brought us together with LaRete Art Projects and the Venice Agendas series produced by workinprogress for interviews and discussions.
