Episode 14: Beyond Hearing

To celebrate 60 years of the Goethe-Institut London, we held three Goethe Annual Lectures in 2022. For our third GAL, we invited Dr Matthew Herbert for his talk "Beyond Hearing". Through a series of extraordinary sound recordings, he pushed us to hear further than we might have thought possible, and finally asking the question: “How can systemic listening lead to meaningful action?”

We are offering screenings at the Goethe-Institut London on the last Wednesday of every month. We are delighted to continue our online Goethe-Kino, running for 10 days after the cinema screening.
