1 a.m.: Hethre Contant Rebroadcast from Sat., Sept. 21, 2013. Hethre Contant is the current artist-in-resident at Wave Farm in Acra, NY, and will host this program live, featuring work made during her residency. During her residency Contant will further develop a performance for radio based on research about transmission during The Weimar Republic. This research was compiled in her Master’s thesis, which received The Distinguished Thesis Award from The New School’s Media Studies Department in 2012. Over 90 pages of historical, technical, and theoretical writing addresses a lacuna in media scholarship about the importance of this radio epoch. However, in its academic form, Contant realizes that her research remains limited to a small, rather specific community. A public performance and archival documentation of her proposed performance, makes Contant’s research accessible to a wider public audience.
