Call to Listen – a Post_Colonial Resonance Space (2017)

Call to Listen is a multi-part invitation to deal with the politics of sounding, listening and being heard in post_colonial Hamburg. A mixture of historical and contemporary material, field recordings, archive material, and samples served as a material pool for a series of listening sessions. In these listening sessions, the sound material was commented on by various experts in the form of interviews and expanded with additional footage. From the collection of sounds as well as sections of the interviews, a 30-minute soundtrack was created that can be heard on site at the Landungsbrücken. This way Landungsbrücken, the site of Hamburg’s colonial past, is activated through listening as a temporary resonance space of remembering in the urban present.
