The Moveable Column
-------------------

The Moveable Column, is a radio talk show. Using Peter Bissegger and Harold Szeemann’s reconstruction of Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbau in Hanover as a starting point, the show explores the possibilities of reconstruction, finitude, rehearsal, performance, and progress, that surround Merzbau's history and present status. Broadcast live, with Resonance FM, the Moveable Column invites artists, curators and writers, whose practice also navigates these ideas, to contribute to each new show, developing a constellation of collected material around Merzbau.

Contributors to date include Ben Cain, Mathieu Copeland, Richard Wentworth, Will Daniels, Hana Noorali, Florian Rothmayr, Adam Chodzko, Will Holder, and Jacapo Miliani. The Moveable Column is produced and co-presented by Jesse Ash and Cally Spooner
