Phonurgia Nova awards 2010
deadline :15 october

The Loud-speaker is probably the greatest common denominator in all
our lives to-day. Video, multimedia, car radios, mobile phones are
all crafting a new life for sound. In all domains sound is an objet
of research, of reflexion. It is essential to open up creative,
imaginative spaces for sound. And to encourage people to listen.
Christian Leblé, chairman.

#01 Background
Among the prizes awarded for radio and acoustic art, the Phonurgia
Nova competition has, since 1986, occupied a special place by virtue
of its recognition of artists whose work exploits sound as a medium
for expressing the real and the imaginary. The contest is open to all
radio station formats and to all authors, independant radio

time/bank for artists!

Thank you e-flux!


Dear Friends,

Starting about a year ago, we have been developing a time bank for the art community. On a practical level, our time/bank is a platform where artists, curators, writers and other people in our field, can exchange time and skills—help each other get things done without using money. In a more idealistic way, the time/bank can become a place where certain types of actions and ideas, that seem to have no value in our market-driven society, can gain a sense of worth.

Time/Bank is now up and running online. We invite you to have a look and see if this is something you would like to get involved in.
