A Performative Sound Installation by Mona Hedayati

Between 19:00 - 19:30

"Listen…to the subject of listening. Listen…to the subject who is at the center of listening, who is subject to listening. Listen…to different things or to same things differently. Listen to this score differently; don’t listen up, listen across the linear time: open up the past to the future every time you listen to the rhythm of the vowels and the consonants. Listen with your whole body and let the distortions sink in and rewind. Can you sense the circuits and nerves intersect?"

Mona Hedayati is an artist and a PhD researcher between St. Lucas Antwerpen (ARIA) and Concordia University, Canada with a background in issue-based, technologically mediated art. Click here for more information.

A poetic listening session / essayistic DJ set by Aio Frei

Between 20:00 - 21:00
