Interview with Heidi Grundmann
Interviewed 7 April 2005 for the radio programme “The Audible Woman” (1980–2006 on CIUT-FM, Toronto ON and WCBN-FM, Ann Arbor MI), hosted by Sarah Peebles.
Heidi Grundmann (Born in Innsbruck, lives in Vienna) has worked as cultural reporter, art and theatre critic, editor and program producer at the ORF (Austrian National Radio/TV) for over 25 years. In 1987 she created the radio program KUNSTRADIO-RADIOKUNST (original artworks for radio) which she still co-curates. Since the beginning of 1995 KUNSTRADIO has its own homepage, which is the site of many art projects and live webcasts. In addition to her work as an on air-on line- on site- radio-art curator, Heidi Grundmann lectures and writes on art and new media and has organized and curated many symposia and exhibitions related to art practice in the electronic media — especially radio, TV and the internet. She was a member of the Berlin DAAD jury for music and the Austrian federal jury for visual arts and acted as coordinator of Ars Acustica, the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) working group on radio art. She has received several awards for her work, most recently the Reischek Ring (1998) and the Werkstadt Graz Prize 2000. [Source: KunstRadio]
