What is the South? Is it just a matter of latitude? is it a phenomenon, is it a method, is it a cliché? Is it possible to define the geographical scale of the South? How can we approach it, without reducing the discourse on mere geographical terms? without reducing its complexity into a monolithic phenomenological entity through which and unlike to we define ourselves?

The artistic debate around these themes is very fragmented but what we would like to do in the context of Süden, is to further articulate the discourse and widen it up to a differ layer: the sonic dimension of South. Is there a southern sonic cliché?

On the occasion of Süden (South in german), an exhibition curated by Angelika Stepken and dedicated to Villa Romana, that will be held at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin from August 26th to September 8th 2013,

throughout a 15-days special broadcast, Radio Papesse’s Süden Radio will try to dwelve into the many different sonic dimensions of the South; shifting from our usual freeform format we will structure our broadcast into a dedicated schedule, running from 12.30 pm to 4.00 pm.
