Artists at Work: On Sonic Politics
This roundtable discussion On Sonic Politics is organized by curator Fabian Flückiger and ISCP artist in residence Felix Kindermann. Together with ISCP residents Clae Lu, Anna Schimkat, and Taavi Suisalu, they will discuss how and why each artist uses sound in their practice. From there they will delve into the measurable and emotional effects of sound, how audiences experience it, and its impact on individual actions and social interactions.
