The exhibition and discussion series Stadt als Klangtext introduces ten artistic positions by sound artists working with urban space. The series aims to consider how auditory experience and sonic work may operate to create a sense of civic engagement, spaces of mutuality, and forms of interruption onto the urban scene. Each exhibition consists of two artists presenting one work, and integrates a discussion evening led by an invited academic and open to the public.


Antje Vowinckel, "Folgen Sie mir pausenlos" -
Ein Speakview mit automatischen Sprechern
Neun Personen gehen über den ehemaligen Berliner Flughafen Tempelhof, mit Headset-Mikros und Audioguides ausgestattet. Dabei sprechen sie ohne Unterbrechung. Sie gehen über Lan­depisten, Wiesen und schließlich in den Hangar 6. Sprechend "filmen" sie ihren Weg ab, zerle­gen ihn in einzelne Bilder. Verschiedene Perspektiven überlagern sich, es entsteht eine Art akustisches Schielen. Der Raum wird neu konstruiert und aus der realen Landschaft wird eine Sprechlandschaft. Produktion: DeutschlandRadio 2012.

Artist and writer Brandon LaBelle presents "Rehearsal for a People's Microphone," a work originally developed as a public intervention in the city of Sherbrooke, Quebec, in 2013. Consisting of a sound system installed in the back of a 1950s pick up truck, the work circulated through the city of Sherbrooke for a two-week period. The project is based on ideas of civic culture and the crowd, specifically appropriating the device of a people's microphone to stage a form of public speech – a rehearsal for a future manifestation. For the presentation at Errant Bodies, LaBelle installs the original audio work, alongside documents and artifacts related to the search for public life.
