Immigrant Sounds, Stockholm - sep 9-12

07. September 2014

Immigrant Sounds is a participatory exploration of the urban space proposed by María Andueza and Abelardo Gil-Fournier throughout concepts such as presence, permanence, displacement or settlement. During the performance the participants will freely move in a particular area of the city of Stockholm while carrying a small electronic device that will broadcast a cicada-like sound, characteristic of the sonic environment of southern countries. A set of ideas and questions will be provided to each participant in order to stimulate this specific exploration of the urban social environment.

Immigrant Sounds is part of Re(s)on-Art, an International Artistic Research Conference with actions in Public Space held in Stockholm between September 9-12, 2014 at ArkDes, Skeppsholmen and throughout Stockholm. Re(s)on-Art is organized by Monica Sand and Ricardo Atienza, artists and researchers in ArkDes, the museum of Architecture and Design of Stockholm.

Re(son)-Art – the art of resonating with/in/through the city – intends to explore everyday situations in public space and encourage daily urban awareness by collective actions. A number of interventions will be arranged in Stockholm by the conference participants, based on their research and artistic practice. Everyone is most welcome to participate actively in all events of Re(s)on-Art!
