“[…] the voice is elusive, always changing, becoming, elapsing, with unclear contours […]“ – Mladen Dolar in: A Voice And Nothing More (2006)
With the artistic research project VOICE ~ CREATURE OF TRANSITION the Rietveld Academie has invited its students to investigate the potential for “pleasure” and “power” offered by the voice in the 21st century.
Practice and theory will now come together in De Brakke Grond, a theater space in the heart of Amsterdam’s old city center.
An exhibition displaying the student’s findings will frame a four-day symposium convened and moderated by:
– Lawrence Abu Hamdan (London)
– If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (Amsterdam)
– Ruth Noack (Berlin)
– Mark Beasley (New York)
These guest curators have each inaugurated a discursive and performative program of one day. If around in Amsterdam on March 19, 20, 21, 22 or 23 you are most welcome to join.
