Eva Egermann – Ein Versuch über Linda Bilda [An Approach to Linda Bilda]

In this experimental audio piece Eva Egermann explores scenes from Linda Bilda’s comic worlds. Which questions do they pose concerning the social conditions of artistic work and socio-political agency? It is a close reading and discussion of Linda Bilda’s texts and images as visual thinking spaces, which are characterized by autonomy, fearlessness, non-conformity, and idiosyncrasy.

Cho Beom-Seok: Prägung [Imprint]

In Cho Beom-Seok‘s documentary Prägung [Imprint], we meet a blind protagonist who tries to transform the small balcony of his apartment into a “paradise”. Through the dialogues and intimate and associative sound compositions, the viewer is introduced to a world that reveals more about human existence than it seems at first glance.

For this podcast on the cinematic work, currently on view in the exhibition Handspells, the artist dares to experiment with omitting the images of the film in order to reduce our experience to the auditory: we are following the audio description for the blind and visually impaired. Sounds, dialogues and music form a sonic space that allows a singular intimacy and closeness that seems only accessible through this path.
