Wo kommen wir hin. Kathrin Röggla: The Elephant in the Room


Individual spaces at the Akademie venue on Hanseatenweg are transformed into a labyrinth based on this figure of speech. Hall 1, the Studio for Electroacoustic Music, the “Beckett Studio”, the reed garden, etc., become part of a matrix of the unspeakable, of prevented conversation, of repressed conflict and misunderstanding. The result is an acoustic, visual and performative installation developed by Kathrin Röggla, Mark Lammert and Eran Schaerf, along with other Akademie members and guests.

Acoustic Director: Leopold von Verschuer
