Radiophonic Spaces wins the 2019 Heritage in Motion Award

The Heritage in Motion Award is an annual multimedia competition which honours the best multimedia achievements and products which bring Europe's cultural and natural heritage closer to the public in a creative and innovative way. On 20 September 2019 in Ljubljana, the »Radiophonic Spaces« travelling exhibition received the Heritage in Motion Award in the »Games & Interactive Experiences« category.


»The Radio Spaces audio tour invites visitors to discover 100 years of radio art. You can immerse yourselves in the radio plays at your own pace – your own movements and interactions literally breathe life into the personalised tour, allowing guests to hear the works and also really feel them«, the jury said about their decision.

The »Radiophonic Spaces« exhibition was initiated by Prof. Nathalie Singer, Professor of Experimental Radio at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, and with its team of scientists, employees and students, it has set itself the task of making the radio art legacy of the last 100 years more accessible. Visitors can immerse themselves in over 200 international radio plays from the long history of radio. The immersive aspect of the exhibition's design is a surround sound installation consisting of transmitters which – thanks to modern technology – are triggered by visitors' movements within the room itself. Apart from its last stop in Weimar, »Radiophonic Spaces« has also been on display at »Haus der Kulturen der Welt« in Berlin and at »Museum Tinguely« in Basel. 

Heritage in Motion is a joint initiative of the European Museum Academy and Europa Nostra and is supported by Europeana. The European Museum Academy is a non-profit foundation which represents museums at European level and maintains memberships in more than 30 countries.
