Isa Genzken’s concrete and poignantly mute
Weltempfanger radios—the German word for
short-wave radios translates literally as “world
receivers”—have a special resonance in a
German context because the Nazi party used
the radio as a propaganda tool. At the same
time, radios allowed people in Germany to
secretly dial in to the Allied stations. Far
beyond the history of World War II, radio
continues to play a defining role in political
and cultural discourse today.
