Art + Sound = Solidarity and Resistance? 47:13
This presentation revisits the paper "The Love Affair between the Museum and the Arts of Sound - But Will It Last?" authored in 2006, to examine shifting relations between sound-based practices and various sites of contemporary art, twelve years on.
Does sound as a medium, with its potential to eschew the object and its intrinsic collaborative properties, open up possibilities for solidarity and collectivity, and a space to resist the increasingly individualised, privatised and atomised realm of contemporary art?
If so, what forms of resistance do we see, by whom and where?
How are different sites of contemporary art engaging with such practices?
