LIGNA works with radio to design experimental situations, which look for a re-actualization of the inherent, yet forgotten and ignored potentials of the medium. Their projects in public space focus on the situation of radio reception as a social practice. They propose practices of collective radio reception, in which the constellation of listeners becomes an association. This association can produce uncontrollable situations. The dispersed crowd of radio listeners introduces a new kind of uncanny production into the commodified urban spaces: a public production, that is not based on private property, but on the distribution of the broadcasted voice. This voice does not belong to anybody, it is dispersed into uncountable situations - and in each of them it makes a difference. The lecture will present video and audio material of several radio interventions. The free radio group LIGNA exists since 1995. LIGNA consists of the media theorists and radio artists Ole Frahm, Michael Hüners, and Torsten Michaelsen, who since the early nineties have been working at the "Freies Sender Kombinat" (FSK), a public non-profit radio station in Hamburg.
