FORESTS OF ANTENNAS, OCEANS OF WAVES
An exploration of art and theory in electromagnetic urban environments
May — October 2022 • Berlin
Artistic interventions in urban spaces • Sound performances • Conference • Exhibition
Featuring Bureau d’Études • Radio Otherwise (Kate Donovan, Monai de Paula Antunes, Niko de Paula Lefort) • Kobakant • Sarah Grant & Danja Vasiliev • Nicolas Nova • Solarpunks • Selena Savic & Gordan Savičić • Teresa Dillon • Mario de Vega • Susanna Hertrich • Marta Zapparoli and others
In what ways are urban landscapes, our own bodies and society in general impacted by the invisible electromagnetic waves, frequencies and radiation associated with new communication technologies?
Forests of Antennas, Oceans of Waves is a series of events that delves into the phenomena of electromagnetic waves in urban environments from both an artistic and theoretical perspective.
The starting point of our project is the discourse surrounding the 5th generation mobile network known as 5G. This new global standard in wireless technology is currently being tested and expanded in Berlin, throughout Germany and in other cities worldwide and also discussed in the context of »smart city« technologies and initiatives.
In workshops, interactive walking tours, lectures, sound performances, presentations, installations and discussions, we intend to shed light on the various physical, social, legal, urban, political, biological and ecological implications of »Hertzian Space«.
