Van I LOVE NY naar venLOVErrast. In de vorige eeuw was kunst verzet. Echter, in de afgelopen tien jaar is kunst ook economisch beleid geworden. Bij de opwaardering van oude wijken, bij sloopdecoratie en city-branding worden kunstenaars betrokken. In het kielzog van projectontwikkelaars en marketingmanagers trekt een stoet van ‘geëngageerde’ kunstenaars mee, die meewerken aan dergelijke projecten.   In hun documentaire 'Operatie creatieve stad' vragen Kirsten Algera en Felix Jansen zich af wat de verborgen ambities van deze kunstprojecten zijn en gaan ze op zoek naar de 'bindende' kracht van kunst.

read summary | listen

Radiodays is a temporary radio station. Realizing a listening exhibition rethinks ways of art presentation. By using an auditive format, artistic works are presented within a space in succession of each other rather than simultaneously: they appear, disappear and reoccur. The choice of using radio at the same time attempts to give a voice to an actual concern towards the auditorial found in many works by visual artists.
