Radiator: Exploits in the Wireless City [uk Nottingham]

4th Radiator Festival and Symposium: Exploits in the Wireless City :: January 13-18, 2008 :: Nottingham, UK :: Launch Event: January 14, 6:00 -11:00 pm — Broadway Media Centre, Backlit (tbc), Surface Gallery.

Exploits in the Wireless City aims to instigate discussion, debate and new interdisciplinary research networks based on the understanding that the development of digital networks are transforming our notion of space.

GOING UNDERGROUND: Through its artistic interventions, Radiator will put theory into practice with projects and events that both position and challenge the dominant forces at work in the urban environment and explore the new territories opened up by new hybrid spaces. Radiator will set up investigations into this infrastructure by placing 5 artists into the urban confines of British cities in the Going Underground project: Glenn Davidson (Artstation) [UK] Folke Kobberling & Martin Kaltwasser [DE] Ian Nesbitt [UK] Christian Nold [UK] N55 [DK].

These artists will act as sleeper agents, observing and gathering information from a range of different sources including; architects, planning departments, city council offices, surveillance, monitoring centre’s and the Police to create new work in response to their research

RADIATOR SYMPOSIUM :: January 15 – 16, 2009 :: Broadway Media Centre, Nottingham : Bringing together artists with architects, urban theorists, computer scientists, sociologists and fellow citizens, the symposium will explore, question and play with a new urban landscape where the re-conceptualizing of the public sphere in the regeneration developments of the East Midlands mirror those around Europe.
