PRISON RADIO

2013/2012/2009

An Audioproject with delinquents

The project was set in a prison for young men in a village close to Basel. We organised audiorecorders and computers for the prisoners and showed them how to record and edit for radio broadcast. The idea of the project is to connect a closed institution to the outside world. In times where the outside world relies on Internet and social media, radio stays the only media to connect the outer and inner world of the prison walls. The recording and editing developed over three months and the prisoners could work on their material autonomously as far as the structures allowed them to. As a result of the project we broadcast a one hour show on Radio X. The participants were present in the studio which is situated in the city of Basel and made a live moderation.
