Audio Guide to Latin American streets 2019 -2020
The audio piece called Audio Guide to Latin American streets 2019 -2020 consists of material that deals with the sound dimension of protests in the streets of Latin America (Colombia, Cuba, Chile, Brasil, Argentina, Ecuador, Peru) between 2019 and 2020. It compiles anonymous donations of audio material collected in the winter of 2020. It was a commission for el Museo de la Democracia at the ngbk Berlin (neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst e.V.).
The idea of this audio piece called Through Water comes from understanding water as a body through which voices, rhythms and melodies navigate in time and space. Water is the place where different human stories and echoes collide, meet and mix.
