The workshop conveys substantial knowledge for the curatorial practice of this exceptional art form handling the history of sound art and various positions within it, the role of the technology as well as common issues regarding realisation and presentation of sound art.
The workshop is conducted by experienced lecturers. Discussions with experts on the subject along with visits to sound art galleries, public places presenting works of sound art as well as institutions that make Berlin a city of sound art since the 1980s are all part of this three-day workshop.
