Eternal Slide Show

Radio play, 22 hours. Together with Frauke Berg. 2022

Grandpa J has an archive of several thousand slides on his shelves in the attic. Between 1956 and 2002, he photographed shared experiences with his wife, travel memories, the children’s growing up – the very normal, special life of a family. So how does one deal with this huge archive? Everything is so normal, Grandpa J thinks, that no one will be interested in it any more. Will it end up in the rubbish or be preserved? And what will be preserved if it doesn’t end up in the rubbish? In 22 stages, we auditorily accompany OJ on another, perhaps final, comprehensive slide show. Initially sifted and narrated chronologically, the acoustic material gradually deforms into an endless loop.

Radio Art Zone was a 100-day radio art station as part of the European Capital of Culture Esch 2022. Conceived by Mobile Radio and jointly produced with Radio ARA, it broadcast in the south of Luxembourg. Additionally it was live-streamed, and transmitted to a worldwide audience by a network of international partner stations –
reaching upwards of a quarter of a million listeners.


All 100 of the specially produced 22-hour radio artworks are now presented here as an online exhibition, in order for them to continue to be enjoyed and explored at leisure.
