Management/ Artistic direction

Jochen Sandig was born in Esslingen, Germany, in 1968. In 1990 he moved to Berlin to study psychology and philosophy where he has since been active as an urban pioneer and cultural entrepreneur. His passions are the city as public space, and the arts. Ever willing to take risks, he has enriched Berlin by founding several cultural institutions: Following the founding of the Tacheles Art Centre in 1990, he remained the director of the Tacheles Foundation e.V. until 1994. In 1993, together with Sasha Waltz, he founded the dance company link Sasha Waltz & Guests. He went on to co-found the link Sophiensaele in 1996, an independent venue for dance and theatre productions in Berlin-Mitte, which he directed until 1999. From 2000 to 2004 Jochen Sandig was a member of the artistic direction as well as a dramatist at the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz. Since 2004 he has been the director of the independent Sasha Waltz & Guests GmbH. In February 2012 he celebrated his first direction work with "human requiem", a staging of Johannes Brahms' "Ein Deutsches Requiem" in cooperation with the Rundfunkchor in Berlin and Simon Halsey.

Jochen Sandig is a member of the Lenkungskreis Kulturwirtschaft (Steering Committee for Cultural Policy) in the Berlin Senate and a member of the Council for the Arts and of the Forum Zukunft Kultur. In January 2010 he was awarded the most important cultural distinction in France and was appointed Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.


Folkert Uhde was born in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, in 1965. After training as a radio and television engineer, he studied musicology and communications at the TU in Berlin. At the same time, he took instruction as a baroque violinist at the Akademie für Alte Musik in Bremen. He worked as a freelance musician until 1995, when he founded Folkert Uhde Konzert & ProjektManagement. Since 1997 he has been a co-proprietor of link Uhde & Harckensee MusikManagement. From 1997 to 2008 Folkert Uhde was the manager and dramatist of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin. He has initiated and created programmes for numerous festivals including link "Zeitfenster" the Biennale of Early Music in collaboration with the Konzerthaus Berlin. Since 2013 he is the artistic director of "Internationale Orgelwoche Nürnberg - Musica Sacra".

In addition to developing innovative concert and music theatre formats for RADIALSYSTEM V, the focus of his work is on television and film productions, which thus far include broadcasts on ZDFkultur, 3sat, ARTE and harmonia mundi. In 2009 he was named Culture Manager of the Year for his "successful work, his engagement, and his innovative ideas and forms of cultural communication."


Together, Jochen Sandig and Folkert Uhde founded RADIALSYSTEM V in 2005 as a privately-funded venture. Since it was opened in 2006, they have worked as joint managing directors as well as sharing duties as artistic directors of the venue.
