On Thursday 18 November, the artist Kristoffer Raasted will be hosting BAR x – Special Edition at Art Hub launching his podcast series, New Connections: Queering the Radio Voice.
The series features a total of 10 episodes, edited versions of the live-streamed radio programmes of the same title, which listeners could hear on four Thursdays during the spring of 2021. The radio programmes were part of Art Hub’s Testing Ground programme and are also part of Kristoffer Raasted’s PhD project.
At BAR x, in conversation with one of Art Hub’s directors, Lars Bang Larsen, Kristoffer Raasted will briefly describe the idea behind the series. There will also be a live performance by the composer/performer Marcella Lucatelli, who appeared in the very first New Connections : Queering the Radio Voice programme, while Jan Stricker (from The Lake Radio) will be the DJ. Stricker also appeared as a guest in the third live edition of the radio programme.

ABOUT TESTING GROUND
Testing Ground is a ‘test site’ that gives artistic researchers the opportunity to test ideas and methods in practice. A forum where artistic processes can meet and be tested in front of an audience or in front of colleagues. Here, the artist can qualify relevant themes and share his or her research in a new, experimental space, located between academic and artistic practice, between studio and exhibition space.
