V.A. - SEE THIS SOUND. PROMISES OF SOUND AND VISION (BOOK)


"The quiet halls of the museum are a thing of the past. Instead, music and sounds are heard everywhere, as visual artists today take for granted the integration of the world of sounds in their works. The former hegemony of the visual has meanwhile given way a diverse interplay of image and sound. The first pioneers in this expanded field of artistic work already emerged during the 1920s. The alleged hierarchy of the senses, reflection on perceptions, and the search for synergies were the greatest challenges. "Media Art" later became a means of socio-political engagement and a topos of the avant-garde. Major technical changes in media, audio-visual experiments and the charged relationship between narration and abstraction led again and again to new ways of working. The project See this Sound aims to make several important aspects of this manifold and diverse relationship between image and sound accessible in an interdisciplinary way." (label info) In german and english. The long list of artists includes John Cage, Jeremy Deller, Einstürzende Neubauten, Rodney Graham, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Jutta Koether and many, many more.
