Exhibition City Walks
Sound is a medium that can make you think about yourself in an environment. Listening consciously to sound and noise places you in time and space and makes you aware of your surroundings. Sound is immediate and distance-less and therefore always has relations to its environment. It has the ability to bring established relations as well as power hierarchies into question. Asymmetrical power relations, which were established within, for example, colonial and imperialist cosmologies, put the human over the non-human and define nature as a resource to serve a capitalist world order. These are constellations and orders which are perpetuated and still in place today.
In a series of workshops, Citywalks worked with this assumption, promoting this idea by practically moving through spaces and listening actively.
