KUB Projects 2018
KUB Projects provides a forum for an extended involvement with current developments in contemporary art and society. Employing experimental formats and working methods, discussions, and interventions, KUB Projects will be entering into a direct dialogue with the town, its history and people.
Talks on Music and the Arts
Bregenz is not just home to Kunsthaus Bregenz but also to the Bregenz Festival and a public enthusiastic about music. Music and visual art frequently interrelate in such a town ¬– for example, during the celebrations for KUB’s 20th anniversary, when the sound artist Tarek Atoui thrilled the audience with his haunting performance. A series of public talks and presentations of works, spread throughout 2018, will deal with the role of music, notation, and listening in the practice of visual artists. Voice, media, and listening habits are being addressed by the following artists, for whom audio and sound are ongoing concerns in their artistic practices:
Lawrence Abu Hamdan, born 1985 in Amman, Jordan
Tarek Atoui, born 1980 in Beirut, Lebanon
Christian Marclay, born 1955 in San Rafael, USA
Marinella Senatore, born 1977 in Cava de’ Tirreni, Italy
Samson Young, born 1979 in Hong Kong
Specific dates and details concerning the Talks on Music and the Arts will be published in due course.
