19 December 2009 - 7 February 2010

Moritz Ebinger is building a radio studio with microphones, a table, chairs, pens, record turntables and other objects. He is covering all the objects with a thick layer of red paint. Ebinger will be making radio broadcasts about the colour red from this studio in the entrance area. He will conduct interviews with other artists, students, random visitors, politicians, theorists, designers and many others.

From 19 December 2009 until 7 February 2010 everyone will be able to listen to Radio Red live on Sundays. In the broadcasts Ebinger will talk about his fascination with the colour red as a symbol of love, hate, romance, fire, communism and more. According to Ebinger it is possible to have more profound conversations by concentrating on one colour.

You can also listen to Moritz Ebinger’s live broadcasts at home on Sundays on the website. From 19 December Radio Red can be heard continuously on the Internet and at the radio studio in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
