La zona. Radio Picknick performance

What does constitute the unclear zone of a revolution? Who defines such a statement? For decades, small, illegal FM stations have been accompanying resistant political practices without any kind of vanity and in a very charming way: from occupied grounds of nuclear power stations, border camps of “no human is illegal” campaigns, to camps on Wall Street, the Schlosspark in Stuttgart and soon perhaps in Berlin-Mitte. Under the radar of visual and thus representative charging: It is a remote flickering, a hissing and a silence maintained by pure energy. Maybe also the blue taste of roasted sesame seeds on salted celery. Could it be that a political act that emerges from nothing?, without an interest?, from a wayside gathering? From a picnic arrangement somewhere in the open countryside? With roasted sesame seeds and a radio station?
