The Transmitter Show – Words At a Distance

If written text is the first generation of virtual reality, radio plays are part of second-generation virtual realities, fostering different imaginative leaps and foregrounding the spectral presence of the voice. The Transmitter Show – Words At a Distance engages both these levels. It consists of a book of scripts for radio plays, commissioned from artists and writers, and the transmission of these plays on the radio.

The Transmitter Show – Words At a Distance is a book and a series of radio plays with contributing artists Alex Bailey, Pierre Bismuth & Dessislava Dimova, Kristin Tårnesvik & Espen Sommer Eide, Kim Hiorthøy & Lisa Österberg, Jugedamos, Krõõt Juurak, Tija Suttikul,Michael Alexander Vizsolyi and Bedwyr Williams edited by Aaron Schuster and Anne Szefer Karlsen in collaboration with Hordaland Art Centre, Bergen, Norway.

Aaron Schuster is a writer and philosopher. He teaches at the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam, and is a research fellow at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry Berlin. Anne Szefer Karlsen is a curator and currently the Director of Hordaland Art Centre.
