Kiosk Radio, Radio Raheem & Radio 80000 announce audio-visual platform, ‘25AV’
The leading online radio stations have opened calls for music producers and visual artists to collaborate as part of the audiovisual arts and performance platform.
’25AV’, which has been co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe Programme, is the brainchild of Brussels’ Kiosk Radio, Milan’s Radio Raheem and Munich’s Radio 80000, and has been launched with the aim of fostering connections between creatives in the music and visual arts world across Europe.
The platform will also seek to spotlight emerging talent and will use the radio stations as a means to help push independent artists beyond their borders.
The music producers and visual artists who apply will be asked to partner up with a creative based in a different European country to them, and an independent committee will then select and commission 18 artistic pairs to create 18 exclusive audiovisual works of up to 25 minutes in length.
As off 2023, ’25AV’ will profile the selected artists, their backgrounds and creative practice, sharing the new audiovisual works and accompanying interviews on a weekly basis. In autumn/winter of next year, they will also offer an offline programme that includes a series of live audiovisual performances, talks and exhibitions hosted at arts spaces in the home bases of each station: Brussels (iMAL), Milan (Triennale Teatro) and Munich (ZIRKA).
Kiosk Radio is an online community radio and video streaming platform broadcasting every day from a previously abandoned wooden kiosk in the heart of Brussels historic “Parc Royal”. Radio Raheem is an online radio and video streaming platform supporting the local cultural scene. They broadcast 24/7 from a booth inside the Triennale Museum of Design in Milan. Radio 80000 is a non-commercial online radio from Munich promoting collaboration and cultural expression through music, dialogue and events all over Germany.
