Datscha Radio is a mobile, site-responsive transmission project maintained and organised by Gabi Schaffner in collaboration with local and digital networks of sound (and radio) artists, gardeners, scientists and DIY people. Datscha Radio uses “the garden” and the practice of radio both as metaphor and method to organise and share knowledge and (cultural) concepts of growth.
When not actively on air, Datscha Radio is maintained as a blog and archive for the documentation of the ecological/garden-related topics encountered by the artist in the pursuit of her work.
Datscha Radio's unique combination of discourse, artistic practice, event and (partly nomadic) radio making creates a platform for sharing and communication that facilitates not only my own work but also the work of other artists and radio makers.
Founded with Pit Schultz in cooperation with reboot.fm, Berlin 2012.
