Datscha Radio Taiwan
Sunday, Nov 10 / 11 pm – 12 pm
From 15th of January to the 17th of March 2019 Gabi Schaffner was invited to install her project Datscha Radio at the Treasure Hill Artist Village in Taipei, Taiwan. Datscha Radio is a nomadic and temporary radio station that focuses on radio art and ecology. Founded in a traditional “Schrebergarten” in Berlin, Datscha Radio takes the garden as its matrix and metaphor for sharing, diversity and organic growth.
In Taipei she staged six radio broadcasts (between 3 and 5 hours long) together with local and international artists. The fifth show on the 10th of March, of which we hear an excerpt of one hour, explored the situation of creative women in the Asian art world. More information about Datscha Radio and its past and current iterations you can find on https://datscharadio.de.
Gabi Schaffner works as a transdisciplinary traveling artist and performer. More about her on https://schaffnerin.net

Sheryl Sheung: Vitality Conversations
‘Vitality Conversations’ is an ongoing project that involves interviews with women who respond to the idea of blossom with tales of their own life stories. Fictional and true stories are weaved together into an abstract stream of life energy that serves as the soundtrack to an installation of vased flowers illuminated by a looped performance of flowers blooming.
