CITIZENS BAND RADIO

When she was a teenager, Susana Mendes Silva was an operator at Citizens Band Radio (CB), a two-way, short-distance radio communication system which can be used by anyone for personal or professional purposes. Using this system only became legal in Portugal after the 25th April 1974, and it remained extremely popular until the early 1990s, becoming obsolete with the widespread use of mobile phones. Since CB was one of the influences for the artist’s performances, she proposes, within the 2018 Artistic Lab, a reflection on the notions of technology.
