With interdisciplinary exhibition projects, performances, an opera installation and a diverse discourse program, the series VOICE:over at Galerie Nord| Kunstverein Tiergarten presents various phenomena of the voice. VOICE:over explores the changing relationship between the human body and the voice as well as its technical-digital reproducibility in the current era.
What kind of voices are recognized as such within our societal power dynamics? What opportunities to be heard do other voices have? In postcolonialism, gender and queer research, the examination of the voice of others and their being heard is of central importance. The question of who can and may speak for whom is currently more explosive and virulent than ever. The voice as a means of communication and as a medium of artistic expression has undergone an essential change in and through the Covid 19 pandemic: between digital growth and real loss of meaning.
The projects negotiate the spectrum of the voice as a medium within the medium itself – considering scream as well as speaking or singing.
Project 1 | April 14 – May 28, 2022 | Vernissage: April 13, 7 p.m.
The exhibition shows the tension between the voice as a physical phenomenon and the voice as a political and social form of expression. The works presented by artists with a migration background, all of whom live in Berlin, refer both to their current right to co-determination in society and to their history.
Announcement: Project 2 | June 10 – July 30, 2022
Catherine Lorent's hybrid work, which moves between music (experimental metal) and visual arts, challenges established categories and integrates painting, drawing, sculpture, performance and theatrical settings in various installations.
