Poetic radio from the Fondation Louis Vuitton



The Fondation Louis Vuitton celebrates contemporary poetry with RADIO, an original series of radio broadcasts. The first edition of this innovative initiative is scheduled for December 11-12, 2015.

Broadcasting live from the Auditorium of the Fondation Louis Vuitton, RADIO brings together publishers, art schools, research centers and creative talents from a variety of fields for an eclectic array of panel discussions, readings, concerts, interviews and documentaries to explore the possibilities offered by poetry. Musicians, artists and poets from around the world are invited to contribute to the project within the scope of 15 works commissioned for each session.

The event will be broadcast live via the Fondation Louis Vuitton website and also available in podcast.
