STADT KLANG TEXT – Urban Sound Projects
Exhibition series: #5 of 5
Jacob Kierkegaard : Durch die Wand (2014)
Georg Klein : Ramallah Tours (2009)
Exhibition: December 10th – 14th, 2014, 16:00 – 20:00h
Discussion: Thursday, December 11th, 19h – with Prof. Kathrin Wildner and the artists
Two projects dealing with the same topic – the border between Israel and Palestine – but in very different ways. In the discussion evening the urban ethnologist Prof. Kathrin Wildner will ask the artists about their concepts, the methods of realization, and the effectiveness of sound art in public space.
The exhibition and discussion series Stadt als Klangtext introduces ten artistic positions by sound artists working with urban space. The series aims to consider how auditory experience and sonic work may operate to create a sense of civic engagement, spaces of mutuality, and forms of interruption onto the urban scene. Each exhibition consists of two artists presenting one work, and integrates a discussion evening led by an invited academic and open to the public.
