Reflecting on the transformative power of radio in the history of the 20th century, for the Transformation Marathon, Serpentine Radio invites artists, activists, musicians, writers, philosophers, poets, filmmakers and scientists to intervene in all aspects of the broadcast, including news, talk shows, time announcements and radio plays. Serpentine Radio is presented in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut, London.

The Transformation Marathon, which takes place at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery from 10am-10pm on Saturday 17 October and continues on air from midnight on Sunday 18 October, invokes the hidden knowledge of magic and alchemy. It investigates the strategies of cyborgs, magicians, parasites and storytellers to consider how to represent and effect change in the face of complexity. How can the arts and sciences reimagine aesthetics and politics? How are these individual and collective actions reflective of a precarious landscape?
