Become the listener in new podcast with political geographer and sound artist Anja Kanngieser
In a new Ràdio Web MACBA and Sonic Acts podcast, we become the listeners as political geographer and sound artist Anja Kanngieser reflects on expanded listening, the inaudible, and our anthropocentrism. Talking about their long-standing interest in sound governance, they dissect the many tensions that built up in the project Climates of Listening, which was originally based on the intention of amplifying campaigns for self-determination and self-representation amongst Pacific communities. Listen to the podcast here via Ràdio Web MACBA. Political geographer and sound artist Anja Kanngieser works in the coordinates between space and sound. This merging of disciplines that seems completely normal to them tends to be more perplexing to the compartmentalised world of science and academia than to the undisciplined field of artistic practice. If you are interested in more from Anja Kanngieser, their presentation Listening to Ecocide at the Sonic Acts Academy 2020 conference earlier this year is available to watch in full online.
