Interruption or mistake make one more aware: the gaze focuses on visuality of writing if a letter misses in a word, the ear hears silence when it’s interrupted by unexpected sounds. Long distance delays, radio echoes, remind of unrevealed, inexplicable, layers wrapping our orderly lifes.
In 1977, during Documenta 6, Joseph Beuys and Douglas Davis broadcasted live their performance via satellite for an international audience, addressing it directly in the end. With this in mind we extend this practice by broadcasting one of the live performances of Documenta 13 via (pirate) radio and addressing unknown number of anonymous audience.
The live radio broadcasting will take part 12 July, from 2 p.m. in Karlsaue park (FM frequency @ ~106,5Mhz).

Neringa Černiauskaitė is an art critic, curator and editor in chief of Lithuanian contemporary art daily www.artnews.lt. She is an undergraduate at Bard’s Centre for Curatorial Studies, NY.

During dOCUMENTA (13) and as part of his Hypnotic Show, Marcos Lutyens hosts a series of hypnosis sessions, both for individuals and for groups. On 2012-07-12 Neringa Černiauskaitė and Ugnius Gelguda were doing from the place a pirate radio on FM frequency. Interestingly, when the hypnosis session started, the transmission unexpectedly interrupted and started again after the session.
