The book assembles six conversations recorded in Berlin between
Heimo Lattner and colleagues – Karolin Nedelmann, Moritz von Rappard,
Judith Raum, Brandon LaBelle and Jassem Hindi – focusing on the artist’s
research and practice. The conversations form a base for exposing key issues
approached in Lattner’s work, from Greek theater to city development,
processes of displacement and gentrification to the re-interpretation and
appropriation of cultural traditions, languages and ancient forms of communi-
cation. At the center of the conversations is the recurring theme of the voice,
which Lattner’s work queries as fundamental to issues concerning the formation
of social and cultural identity. Lattner asks us to consider how the voice comes
to carry contested meanings.
