PirateBlockRadio is the object of Duque’s residency in the Eastern Bloc Lab. Setting up a station functioning as an open channel or laboratory, he will transform free radio waves into a site of experimentation. Duque, operating out of the Lab, will pair a local FM radio transmitter with an Internet-based station and encourage their open interaction and dissemination. The pirate radio station serves to examine the conditions and structures of radio technology and corporate telecommunications and proposes a set of concrete ways to hack these structures. The station will engage with all types of programming—artistic, political, theoretical, etc.—in the hopes of inciting dialogue and critique within the local and international digital art community. Content will be broadcast online and via local radio waves during the week of the festival.
