CRiSAP (Centre for Research into Sound Arts Practice, UAL) are pleased to partner with Errant Sound to host this Berlin launch of Salomé Voegelin’s newest Book.

Uncurating Sound: Knowledge with Voice and Hands, Bloomsbury, 2023, performs, across five chapters, a deliberation between art, politics, knowledge and normativity. It foregrounds the perfidy of norms and engages in the curatorial as a colonial knowledge project, whose economy of exploitation draws a straight line from Enlightenment’s desire for objectivity, through sugar, cotton and tobacco, via lives lost and money made to the violence of contemporary art.

Salomé Voegelin is a Professor of Sound at London College of Communication, UAL, member of CRiSAP, and an artist and writer engaged in listening as a socio-political practice of sound. She is the author of Listening to Noise and Silence (2010), Sonic Possible Worlds(2014) and The Political Possibility of Sound(2018), all by Bloomsbury Academic. Her work and writing deal with sound and the world sound makes: its aesthetic, social and political realities that are hidden by the persuasiveness of a visual point of view.
