RADIKAL UNSICHTBAR
ACT5: NOMENRATURE

Workshop / Radio performance
HANAN BENAMMAR (DZ/FR/NO)
Installation / Performance
CLAUDIA LOMOSCHITZ (DE/AUT)

 

Through the work-and-title-in-progress lexicon Desert Bærbær we will investigate Hamburg's colonial history in the workshop NOMENRATURE by French/Algerian Oslo-based artist Hanan Benammar. The workshop participants are invited to join a collective artistic research and to perform an experimental radio play together, which will be sent live through Radio FSK. The title of the workshop is a neologism of the words Nomen (lat.: name) and Rature (fr.: to cross out words with a horisontal line) referring to Nomenclature (br.: system of names).

In the performative installation piece Shamanistic Cultivation Camp by Austrian artist Claudia Lomoschitz, based in Hamburg and Vienna, we will listen to exotic plants and fruits, exploring the ethical borders of inter-organical relationships. Is it possible to force a plant to read the latin alphabeth? Is it acceptable to keep an ananas trapped in a plastic bag?

PROGRAM
ACT 3: PHONOMADIC


Francis Patrick Brady invites the workshop participants to create a communal science-fictional language through play and ritual. Using the voice and a generative card game a system of new rules will be performed and played by what he calls the "T.A.T." - The Temporary Autonomous Tribe. 

Francis Patrick Brady (b. 1988, Toronto, Canada) is an artist, writer and lecturer living and working between Malmö, Sweden and London, England. He has developed a practice based in performance and role play within art conference and university institutional contexts often subverting the usual course of interaction through spoken word or play.

RADIKAL UNSICHTBAR - THE BOOK

Together with the artists conducting the workshop Radikal Unsichtbar publishes a booklet for every ACT. The booklets consist of research materials, essays and interviews, and functions as a supplement to the other activities. The booklets are collected in a cover forming a book which is published on our own label.

Here you can have a look at the published material (Low-res PDF's):

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 




 

1. ACT: VOICENSE

MARCH 24 - APRIL 5 / 2015


WORKSHOP: "VOICENSE"
SIGNE SCHMIDT KJØLNER HANSEN
HANNIBAL ANDERSEN

INSTALLATION:
JULIA BONN + LOUISE VIND NIELSEN

EXHIBITION:
TOMMA BROOK
ANNA MIEVES



Language and the body have the voice in common. The voice exceeds the humanness of language, and propagates as sounds in the surroundings. The voice can be a private sound, or a collective language. How do things turn into words, to sentences, to stories? And inversely? What can be found on the way from the comprehensible word to the unintelligible sound? What is left in the voice after the disappearance of semantics (the meaning of the words)? And what happens in the meeting between the semantically satiated voices and the acoustic answer from the surroundings?

kha = ‘pfui’, etc.

We will explore the nearby surroundings of the area around the workshop-place through our senses, language and voices. Impressions from the local area shapes the raw foundation for an experiment, that revolves around drawing word-like abstractions out of the actual surroundings. The stories of the place will then be processed with sound poetry, via repetition, modulation, permutation, harmony and other methods, with the purpose of dissolving their meanings and hierarchies. Finally they will be returned, via the voice, performatively and/or electroacoustically, as aural objects to the surroundings from where they came.

WORKSHOP DAY 1 - THE PSEUDO SAUSSAURIAN NEGATIVITY MACHINE

An experiment based on the ideas of linguistic Saussaures theories on how meanings of language is understood through differences, or through what things are not! We were experimenting with deconstructions of language and the meaning of words through "positive" and "negative" explanations of what we encountered in the city. In the evening the workshop participant developed and showed performances inspired by the experiments.

 

 

 

 

26.03.2015
WORKSHOP DAY 2 - "ECHOLALIA"

Based on the experiment from 1974 by Nancy Holt and Richard Serra, we investigated how perception and understanding of speech and language changes when one is exposed to an echo of ones own voice. In the Echolalia-experiment the workshop participants worked together in groups of two. Via mobile phone the first person explains what they see, through colors, shapes and movements. The second person imidiately repeats what the first person says. The workshop participant developed and showed performances inspired by the experiments.

 

 

 

 

 

27.03.2015
WORKSHOP DAY 3 - CHE BELLA PAROLA!

The title of the experiment is inspired by the story of an Italian army on a mission. When encountering the enemy the sergeant orders the soldiers to attack: "Soldiers attack!" Nothing happens. The sergeant shouts again louder: "Soldiers attack!" Again nothing happens. Once more the sergeant shouts, this time even louder: "Soldiers attack!" Still nothing happens, until a soldier shouts back:" What a nice voice!"

The experiment focusses on the aesthetics of language rather than the meaning of the words. We went to the botanical garten in Planten un Blumen and wrote down the latin names of the plants. The workshop participant wrote down the names of the plants, tasting the sounds of the words and were leading dialogues with each other only using the names of the plants. They formed a choir only using the phonetics, and finally the workshop participant developed and showed performances inspired by these experiments.

 

 

 

 


Louise Vind Nielsen:
YOUR WEIGHT IN OUTER SPACE

Julia Bonn originally installed this piece as a "SPACE FOR SCREAMING - SPACE FOR ALTERNATIVE ACOUSTIC PERCEPTIONS" (Gallerie Speck, 2010) - A room in which you can let your inner voice out without restrictions and consequences.

In the installation at Radikal Unsichtbar Louise Vind Nielsen re-defines and reverses the installation by letting the amplified sounds from the street outside into the dark room, in order to create an intense experience of listening to the city, without the abstraction of and confrontation with visuality and the bodies of others.

 

 


TOMMA BROOK + ANNA MIEVES

The Hamburg-based artists Tomma Brook and Anna Mieves was invited to translate the process of language and dialogue into material and objects.
