Lale Rodgarkia-Dara
Lale Rodgarkia-Dara, is a writer and sonic artist. Lale develops a new Electroacoustic Literature, that enables writers to read and perform in a collective (with electronic artists and humans) and as individuals with a distance to their texts. Since 2003 she has held Radio-Workshops and is engaged in community work. She produces and develops art that is somehow always related to spaces and spheres in transition, literature and media-art interplaying with open source technology. Her current interest lies in the conversion and transformation of the digital sphere into the analogue reception of the individual subject to their biological existence or simply curiosity.
 She somehow always invents projects with literature, media art and mostly in transitory spaces or on the radio. With Judith Unterpertinger and Carolie Mayrhofer she forms the trio "Under the given circumstances". She is part of Mz. Baltazar's Laboratory Collective, which runs a feminist art/hacker space in Vienna, Vienna's Radia Collective (co-founder of as well as co-founder of the electronic Teatime (until 2015) and Radio Ironie Orchester of Radio Helsinki (2019).
