[ISEA2000] Curator Statement: FG Radio – 2000 Global Tekno digital postcards

Curator Statement


Within ISEA2000, FG Radio proposes  ‘2000 Global Tekno digital postcards’, conceived in Avignon this summer for its participation to the international Beauty Event. Over 2000 visitors have discovered among other things its Digital Biosphere created by Saas Fee collective and were then able to invite themselves on a digital journey that has animated the Cite des Papes with the participation of many djs: L. Gamier, Jack de Marseille, Bob Sinclar, Carlo Mora, Les Micronauts, Rork, Kojak, M&M’s, Cedr’x, Matsa, Cedric Pigot, Peers, etc. The postcards created by Arthur Lecaron with MK2’s support mature into an impressionistic and exhaustive story of this millenar’s Global Tekno suggested by FG. Of an hour long, they are permanently available on the website radiofg.com.

  • Radio FG was founded in 1981 as a community radio rooted in the Parisian gay scene and in support of the gay community. The ‘FG’ initials were said to vary in meaning from “Fréquence Gaie” (Gay Frequency) to “Futur Génération” (Future Generation) to “Filles et Garçons” (Girls and Boys). During its initial four years of broadcasting, the station faced financial struggles as well as internal conflicts, but managed to survive. As time went by, the station, facing an identity crisis, distanced itself from its social activism and re-defined itself as a dedicated electronic music station. [source: Wikipedia]
