Colonial Repercussions

Saturday, 26 May 2018
1 – 1:30 pm, Plenarfoyer

LIVE SOUND PERFORMANCE
Breath

Ain Bailey (Sound Artist, London, UK)

After Ain Bailey’s mother passed, the artist followed the impulse to transform the experience of mourning. This sound performance transforms the entirety of the space into a breathing organism. The historical past and presence of the middle passage will be evoked through the architecture and sonic satiety of the Akademie der Künste on Pariser Platz – an immersive experience of visceral wake work.
