presentation by Sam Auinger + Carsten Seiffarth

bonn hoeren was launched in 2010 as the new sound art project of the »Beethovenstiftung für Kunst und Kultur der Bundesstadt Bonn« (Beethoven Foundation for Art and Culture of the Federal City of Bonn). The project is an invitation to discover the city of Bonn as a lively public stage and a sounding communicative space, and to perceive it in a new way. It is closely connected to the city, its residents and visitors and their everyday inner-city life and work domains.

In the presentation bonn hoeren – »a hearing perspective« currator Carsten Seifarth will give an overview of the backgrounds and the various activities around this project. Sam Auinger will speak about his experiences as a ‘city sound artist’ in Bonn and his past 20 years as city sound researcher and artist.
