 A city –even the most adverse of all– exudes its own antidote,

which people dispose in the search of instant and earthly utopias,

that gradually build compatible areas of freedom

and well-being within a generational scope.

In the part that corresponds to everyone,

each one can renounce to the catastrophe.

Sergio González Rodríguez 1950 – 2017

Suplex is an online and physical publishing platform created by Mexican experimental musicians and artists Israel and Diego Martinez, and researcher Nelly Carrillo in 2009, as a side project of their record label Abolipop (founded in 2002), with the aim of reflecting on social and political issues through sound and collaboration.

EB_Suplex_Voces

Amplified Rumors exhibits three of the most important projects developed by Suplex on the last years in Mexico:

– Temacapulín (Sounds of resistance), an archive of field recordings, interviews, photos, videos (captured by drones) and other research stuff, have been used to spread information about Temacapulín, a town located in the west side of Mexico which is condemned to be flooded due to the construction of a water dam that only benefits the industrial sector and politicians. Through several exhibitions and talks in collaboration with Temacapulín’s inhabitants, Suplex has expanded the communicative scope of the resistance.

– On the way, interviews with Central American migrants during their short stay in Guadalajara, as a step before going North and trying to reach the United States, are the main source for this project, adding research data on various formats, video and photos. Most of these migrants fail in the attempt, some do it again, others return home, while the less fortunate are used by Mexican drug cartels for their operations, or are killed.

– Voces. Santa María la Ribera, in 2014 Suplex began producing this publication with the support of Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City, totally focused on the cultural spirit and the people of Santa María la Ribera, one of the oldest popular neighborhoods in the capital. Voces is distributed for free on the streets of Santa María using voice and recordings to get the attention of the neighbors. The online version has been a platform to explore the soundscape of the area and to make other sonic experiments about its history.

Acousmatic Lecture Series
Acousmatic-logo.jpg

The Acousmatic Lecture Series presents a program of unconventional, interdisciplinary lectures in Berlin, in which art and theory encounter one another in productive dialogue.

The Acousmatic Lecture Series is a laboratory for investigating phenomena that are directly related to acoustic information and its research-based, artistic, and socio-political dimensions.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger

The Hands of the Engraver–Albert Flocon meets Gaston Bachelard

Between the end of the 1940s and the late 1950s, a collaboration of a peculiar sort developed in Paris between the copper engraver of German origin Albert Flocon and Gaston Bachelard, the French philosopher of science and poetologist of imagination. The outcome of this encounter is not very well known even by experts of Bachelard’s oeuvre or of post-war art in France. Flocon and Bachelard together created a series of art books to which the former contributed the engravings and the latter enriched them with shorter or longer commentaries. These commentaries take the form of reflections on the hand of the engraver, the resistance it experiences, and the constructive forces it sets free. The encounter will be described through the presentation of a number of selected examples that will give an impression of the entire oeuvre. It will also shed light on the connection between Bachelard’s poetological and the epistemological interests.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger is a molecular biologist and science historian and studied philosophy, linguistics, and biology in Tübingen and Berlin. He is an honorary professor of the history of science at the TU Berlin, Dr. h.c. at the ETH Zurich, member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and the Leopoldina, and former director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. His main focus today is the history and epistemology of the experiment and the relationship between the arts and the sciences.

The lecture will be held in English!

RADIO ARTEN

Thursday, September 7th, 7 pm / Donnerstag, 7. September 19 h

Sound art on air/ aktuelle Radio-Klangkunst

Two pieces playing with radio genres and new concepts of text/sound compositon

– Galapagos-Kreuzblende (SWR 2017, 36′) von Antje Vowinckel

  • break/bar

– NACHRICHTENTSTELLT (SWR 2016, 32′) von Marc Matter

afterwards: discussion about making of and presentation of inspiration resources with Marc Matter, Antje Vowinckel and Frank Halbig.
Moderated by: Golo Föllmer.
The pieces use German language. Discussion in English/German.

doors: 7 pm, start: 7.30 pm

Galapagos -Kreuzblende simulates a 36 minute cross-fade between science and sound art. It ends as a hybrid sonore. A speech on speciation among birds step by steps morphes into a sound texture employing virtual voices that adopt  the sounds of Darwin’s finches.

Antje Vowinckel is a Berlin based sound artist, radio artist and performer. She works for a variety of public radio stations such as WDR, DRadio, SWR and also creates musical live performances and sound installations. http://www.antjevowinckel.de

NACHRICHTENTSTELLT is inspired by the specific sound of radio news that are transformed into a series of sound poetry compositions.

Prof. Dr. Birgit Schneider

Forms of an Ecological Aesthetics of Climate and Climate Change

The climate is invisible because of its scientific definition as long-term weather statistics. Starting from this postulated an-aesthetic of weather, the lecture will outline the visualization strategies that made perception of the climate possible via early forms of data visualization. In early climate research these perceptions were tied not only to the dispositifs of instrument-based measurements but also of organic sensing that is inseparable to climate perception. Historical examples will be contrasted with today’s visualizations of anthropogenic climate change, which integrate the human factor into the ecology of the climate.

Dr. Birgit Schneider studied aesthetics, media theory, and media art at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design, Goldsmiths College London, and Humboldt University in Berlin. Since 2009, she is researching climatic imagery as a Dilthey Fellow at the European Media Studies program at the University of Potsdam. Her work focuses on the field of image, cultural, and media studies: graphic methods such as maps and diagrams, climatic data visualization, digital images; the theory and technological history of textiles and the punch card; camouflage—strategies of invisibility around 1900; TV history + interference and disruption; art and media history of sound & vision.

The lecture will be held in German!

Kirsten Reese: »Sound Cards« (2005 – )
Installation
To over 50 postcards from cities in many countries the soundscape of the location pictured on the postcard was recorded. The places / postcards were chosen according to the specifity of the sound of the location they represent. The postcard is, in times of Instagram and Facebook, a somewhat obsolete medium, but still linking itself with everyday culture and the communication of experience of strangeness and appropriation alike.

Georg Klein: »Le Due Forze di Taranto / Two Powers of Taranto« (2014)
Photo-Sound-Installation
The installation has three parts, working with the conflicts of the city Taranto in South-Italy. The city is trapped between two forces – the steel and petrochemical industry in the northwest and the navy in the southeast. Two double-sided photo plates show representatives of the two ruling powers. But a third force gets a voice, represented by a member of the independent organisation “Commitato”. In opposition to the representatives on top his face ist visible and also his voice is audible, interrupted by field recording sounds of special locations in the town, ILVA and the navy

Im Rahmen der Acousmatic Lectures Series wird eine Reihe von ungewöhnlichen interdisziplinären Vorträgen in Berlin präsentiert, in welchen Kunst und Theorie sich in einem produktiven Dialog miteinander treffen.

Acousmatic Lectures Series ist ein Labor zur Untersuchung von Phänomenen, die unmittelbar mit akustischen Informationen und ihrer wissenschaftlichen, künstlerischen und gesellschaftspolitischen Dimension in Verbindung stehen.

06.07.2017 – 19:00 h

Prof. Dr. Sabeth Buchmann

(Des-)Artikulation – Stimme als Ort und Medium der Transformation

In der Gegenwartskunst fallen eine Vielzahl von Werkformen auf, die nach der Darstellbarkeit individueller und kollektiver Traumata fragen und in diesem Zusammenhang die Stimme als buchstäbliches und metaphorisches Medium zur Aufführung bringen: Sei es in Gestalt von Sprechproben oder von therapeutischen Sprachtrainings. Insofern auf diese Weise die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Artikulation zum Gegenstand der Darstellung gemacht werden, erweist sich die Stimme als zugleich psycho-emotionaler, sozio-kultureller und gesellschaftspolitischer Topos. Im Vortrag sollen unter Bezugnahme auf Paul B. Preciados Testo “Junkie. Sex, Drogen und Biopolitik in der Ära der Pharmapornografie“ (engl. 2008/ dt. 2016) exemplarische Filme und Filminstallationen der Künstlerinnen Ana Hoffner und Katarina Zdjelar hinsichtlich der hierin zur Anschauung kommenden Versuche betrachtet werden, die Stimme zum Medium und Ort der (Selbst-)Transformation zu erheben.

Sabeth Buchmann ist Kunsthistorikerin und -kritikerin. Sie veröffentlicht u.a. regelmäßig in der Zeitschrift Texte zur Kunst. Seit 1997 hatte sie Lehraufträge, Assistenzen, Gast- und Vertretungsprofessuren an verschiedenen Akademien und Universitäten inne. Seit 2004 ist sie Professorin für Kunstgeschichte der Moderne und Nachmoderne an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien.

Der Vortrag wird auf Deutsch gehalten!

Prof. Dr. Sabeth Buchmann

(Dis) articulation—Voice as Place and Medium of Transformation

In contemporary art there are a number of expressive forms that question the representability of individual and collective trauma, and, in connection to this, the voice is performed as a literal and metaphorical medium: be it in the form of auditions or therapeutic language training. To the extent the possibilities and limitations of articulation then serve as the subject of the representation, the voice proves to be at the same time a psycho-emotional, socio-cultural, and societal-political topos. Referencing Paul B. Preciado’s essay “Junkie. Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Era of Pharmapornography” (2008), the lecture will examine select films and film installations by artists Ana Hoffner and Katarina Zdjelar in an effort to elevate the voice as the medium and location of (self-) transformation.

Sabeth Buchmann is an art historian and critic. She publishes regularly in the journal Texte zur Kunst and others. Since 1997, she has lectured and worked as an assistant, visiting, and interim professor at various academies and universities. Since 2004, she is professor of modern and postmodern art history at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

The lecture will be held in German!

IN THE SOUND FIELD – Perspectives on Field Recording III

 

Works by Alessandra Eramo, Georg Klein, Georg Werner, Ines Lechleitner, Jeremy Woodruff, Kirsten Reese, Laura Mello, Mario Asef and Peter Cusack

upcoming: 22.-25.6.

Alessandra Eramo »3 Places where I can sing: Songs for Valparaìso«
Installation
The project investigates the sonic memory of the inhabitants of Valparaíso in Chile who are interviewed about songs related to the city. From the recording of this process, Eramo has created a sound composition and performed in various places of the city specifically selected for their symbolic connotation, also using her voice. The work aims to generate a new and bizarre oral history of the present, connecting the sound memory of the inhabitants and Eramo to the public space of the city.

Ines Lechleitner »Looking for Voices«
Video projection
Based on field recordings made by Ines Lechleitner in 2005 in a primate research reserve on the remote island Siberut in Indonesia, the video is an hommage to failed communication attempts: between humans and animals, between a sound and an image. When body and media are at a loss humour takes over.

Mario Asef »Sozio-Phonon«
Sound-Installation for six loudspeakers
Using field recordings from a wide range of sources, the Sozio-Phonon project combines specific acoustic events in a global relationship to one another. The installation unite a number of distant places in a single “here and now,” where the individual acoustic social particles can no longer be pinned down according to location.
A phonon is a quasiparticle used in theoretical solid-state physics to describe quantum mechanically the characteristics of acoustic vibrations in crystal. Phonons are delocalized, i.e. a phonon exists in the overall crystal lattice and keeps from being assigned to a specific location.
