The special five-day Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art program, “Curating Noise: Reverberations and the Polyvocal,” will take place online and in-person within the 12th edition of the quadrennial sonsbeek20→24.
Developed in close dialogue with its curatorial team (including artistic director Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung with co-curators Antonia Alampi, Amal Alhaag, Zippora Elders, and Aude Mgba) and framework, Force Times Distance. On Labour and its Sonic Ecologies, that invites and encourages different modes of listening to make audible that which is already there, but remains unseen and unheard.
This special session of Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art (SFSIA) will focus on a contemporary conception of noise that builds from the idea of listening as a participatory practice. Where in the past noise was something to be controlled and suppressed, today noise and uncertainty are entangled with one another as key concepts in the production of contingency as a driving force of innovation, creativity and resistance. As Reza Negare stani surmises in his essay, “Contingency and Complicity,” the contingent artwork can become the basis for new interactions and dynamic processes that drive the artist to novel realizations and opens up the potential of the work not assumed at its inception
