Tuesday 28 February at 16:00hrs – Interview with Brandstifter

We are all orphans here, too close to the fire, afraid it will go out soon. Under signs of lost cats in a rain of love letters torn to pieces we hide that the streets are words written in asphalt calligraphy; walking them, you become a reader of hidden language On Tuesday 28 February at 16:00 Berlin Time we will talk with Brandstifter.  We will exclusively discuss the weather and how it connects to the cosmology of the Alltag. So many links  

Radio On Kino – reportage from Mim King interviewed by Adrian Shephard

It’s often the case that visitors to berlin explore and discover more than the residents. The performance artist Mim King has been coming to Berlin years before the wall came down and has a particular relationship with the city. In this interview she positively ‘plops’ herself (her words) as she reports on the kino museum in Potsdamer Platz (free entry on Thursdays 16.00-20:00). ‘It’s full of astronauts, aliens and angels’ – Ever wondered where that armor ended up from ‘wings of desire’ ? Yes it’s here as well ! –…

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Hazel Hill McCarthy Talk on Bight of the Twin at CTM Festival

On the 1st of February Adrian Shephard walked to Kunsthaus Bethanien in Berlin, Kreuzberg. He was going to attend a talk that was organised by the CTM festival.

The journey’s focus changed dramatically when, in the process of their research, P-Orridge was “serendipitously initiated” into an ancient ritual known as the “twin fetish.” This practice,…

Not the World News Show with Shephard and Van Alebeek

Theresa May and the Hard Brexit, of course we needed to talk about it, because this directly affects our future. One of Radio On’s founding fathers is Adrian Shephard. And Radio On can’t do without him. I (=Rinus Van Alebeek) asked him what a Hard Brexit would mean for his future, living as an expat in Berlin, which is still in the EC. Trump and populism couldn’t remain untouched. We imagined the end of the European community. This could happen before the year 2020. What would it mean to the…

The Click Opera Experience – Interview with Nick Currie aka Momus during his Berlin years

In 2009 there was no war in Syria, there were no refugees and the populists and their masses weren’t storming the gates of democracy as they do now. There were no ISIS terrorists, Gadaffi was still alive, and so was David Bowie. Brexit was a word noone had ever heard of, and Donald Trump…wasn’t that the guy from the Trump tower, or something? Obama was in his first year, Neukölln hadn’t been gentrified yet, and Radio On was funded by the Dutch crown. The big bang that shook the world…
