anna raimondo invites a clairvoyant to tell her how her artistic intervention in the
frame of documenta 14-radio program will impact her professional life. through the
reading of her future, the artist will also ask how the fact that radio art has been
included in a major event such as documenta will impact the whole future of radio art.
with humour, the performance seriously questions the place of radio art in the
field of contemporary art and more in general the economic and the specific
precariousness of a radio artist and her sustainability in the future.

telephone voice, 2011, 3’36”
in telephone voice, james webb used a clairvoyant to contact orson welles,
interviewing him and transcribing the resulting speech for a voice actor to perform.
conceptually, the deceased american auteur directs the clairvoyant and through him the
actor, who in turn influences the listener. the title refers to a style of telephonic
enunciation often used to convey not only clarity but also a sense of status.
