Concha Jerez and José Iges from Madrid presents “Expanded Radio” at the Museum Weserburg

Concha Jerez and José Iges from Madrid have been working together since 1989 and have become firmly established as pioneers of electronic and intermedial art. Their works combine sound art and radio art. The multimedia installation “ARGOT”, filling an entire room, originated in a radio performance broadcast on ORF Kunstradio and was first shown in 1991 at the Museum of Modern Art, Vienna.

Since then, various versions of the work have appeared in Cologne, Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and Brussels among other places. “ARGOT” is based on a text in English, Spanish, German and French exploring the relationships between artists and the world, their work, the ideas behind their works and the “consumers” of these works. Visitors must listen to all four languages in the acoustic space in order to comprehend the connection between them. An archive of all the radio art works by both artists constitutes an important second part of the exhibition. This archive will stay in the Research Centre, enriching the centre’s ever-growing radio art archive.
