Salomé Voegelin

 

Salomé Voegelin

Salomé Voegelin is a writer, researcher, and practitioner engaged in listening as a socio-political practice. She works from the relational logic of sound to focus on the in-between and the liminal, where different disciplines meet in the contemporary crises of climate and public health, and where feminist, decolonial, and postanthropocentric demands can engender different and plural knowledge possibilities. She published numerous articles and papers, texts and text-scores for performance and publication. And is the author of Listening to Noise and Silence (2010), Sonic Possible Worlds (2014/21), and The Political Possibility of Sound (2018). Her most recent publication Uncurating Sound: Knowledge with Voice and Hands, Bloomsbury 2023, moves curation through the double negative of not not to ‘uncuration’: untethering knowledge from the expectations of reference and a canonical frame, and reconsidering art as political not in its message or aim, but by the way it confronts the institution.

Voegelin’s practice engages in participatory, collective and communal approaches: since 2008 she collaborates with David Mollin (Mollin+Voegelin) in a practice that reconsiders socio-political, architectural and aesthetic actualities and sites from the blindspots of a leaky vision, and the possibilities of sound, things, voices and texts. Between 2014-2022 she co-convened PoL, Points of Listening, with Mark Peter Wright. A monthly series of events which engaged communal listening and sound making in relation to current issues such as hearing diversity, sonic pedagogy, care, ecology, gender and technology. It is regenerated, Post-COVID, as a collective and applied design project: Designing a Sonic Planet, taking the invisible and relational as a starting point to employ musical and sonic competencies and knowledge to re-imagine the world.

Voegelin is a Professor of Sound at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. She is the PI (Principle Investigator) of the UK research council funded project the Sounding Knowledge Network.

Rosa_ Menkman

 

Rosa Menkman

Rosa Menkman is a Dutch artist and researcher. Her work focuses on noise artifacts that result from accidents in both analogue and digital media. These artifacts can offer precious insights into the otherwise obscure alchemy of standardisation and resolution setting. As a compendium to this research, she published the Glitch Moment/um (inc, 2011), a little book on the exploitation and popularization of glitch artifacts.
Menkman developed and highlighted the politics of resolution setting further in a second book titled Beyond Resolution (i.R.D., 2020). In this book, she describes how
the standardization of resolutions is a process that generally promotes efficiency, order and functionality in our technologies. But how as a side effect, the setting of resolutions also compromises and obfuscates alternative possibilities. In 2019 Menkman won the Collide, Arts at CERN Barcelona award, which inspired her recent research
into im/possible images. In this new research she aims to find new ways to understand, use and perceive through and with our technologies.
