Radio in Transit

hyper-local transnational radio : open for conversation

receiving and transmitting from wherever you are.

Join guests in the Transit Lounge and enjoy the free floating conversational flow! An audio oasis. Collecting conversations instead of souvenirs. Dreaming new futures and making them real. As people pass through the Transit Lounge, they leave something of themselves and become part of our shared ‘home’ radio space. Independently produced online & terrestrial broadcasts with people changing the world.

Every conversation is an invitation

Start a conversation; tell a story about the places in between, what inspires you and keeps life interesting, adventures, dreams and visions… Socially engaged networks, embodied interactions, collaborative futures, informal esoteric floating oceans of conversation.

Transit Lounge Radio is 100% independently produced.

Your generous support will help keep the conversation flowing!

Transit Lounge Radio @ Transit Lounge Berlin & Pixelache, Helsinki, 2007.

Transit Lounge, Berlin 2007

The transit lounge is the archetypal transit space, the point where the hyper-global + hyper-local coincide; a location which blurs traditional conceptions of geo-political boundaries, creating pockets of international space within the borders of individual nation-states. An in-between space, it exists relative to a fixed departure and arrival point, not to the area that surrounds it.

Transit Lounge was a series of overlapping residencies for Australian and German artists and architects in Berlin from 2006-2008.

It’s also a blog where themes relating to the project develop, collaborations are initiated and sustained, and observations on the city collected.
