As one of the first artist-groups worldwide,
Station Rose has used the possibilities of
interactive media and especially of the internet
in their work. Performances and lectures in art
galleries, universities and museums are equally
important as performances at media festivals and
in the clubscene.
Station Rose/STR was founded in Vienna, Austria,
in 1988 by Elisa Rose (visuals) and Gary Danner
(sound) as an open media lab, after Rose and
Danner had graduated from the University of
Applied Arts in Vienna. On from the beginning the
activities spanned from art production,
exhibitions, DVD-, CD-, CD ROM- and vinyl
productions, to research (on Virtual Realities,
in cooperation with the Austrian Ministry of
Science and Research), lectures and performing.
Equipped with computers, STR was doing
field-research in Cairo, Egypt, as a
post-graduate grant in 1988/89. At the end of the
eighties, STR started their Gunafa Clubbings in
Vienna & Frankfurt, the first audio-visual
online-clubevents worldwide, playing sounds &
visuals in realtime. In 1991 they moved to
Frankfurt, and went online at the same time (Prix
Ars Electronica in 1995, Honorable Mention).
Since 1999 STR webcasts live at stationrose.com,
performing live@home. Since 2002 they have their
regular TV show at hr-fernsehen/ARD Digital
called "Best of Webcasting". The audio-visual STR
"Koechelverzeichnis" consists of 31 hours now =
so far 31 episodes (31 hours of audio-visual art)
have been produced. "Best of Webcasting" can be
seen as one of the rare media art projects on TV.
The "Digital Archive of Station Rose" has been expanding ever since
Station Rose has released on its own label
Gunafa, on Sony Music, ZYX Music, Mille Plateaux,
edition selene, International Deejay Gigolo
Records, Crippled Dick Hot Wax.
2002-2004 Elisa Rose and Gary Danner shared a
professorship (Media Production) at the
University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt. They
held guest-lectures at diverse universities.
Driven and enabled by digital tools, the work of
Station Rose has a clear focus on
audio-visual-performance art. Rose & Danner see
the art of Station Rose as an artform where the
artist & musician create various forms of
audiovisual content together; performing at
diverse locations and producing in several media.
STR produces re-materialized pieces of art as
distillates out of the flow of their compositions
& is represented by galleries Anita Beckers &
