Dear friends of SoundS,


In this month of May, we invite you to join in an investigation of how space and body may connect through sound. Our sic! sound in context session will host Bárbara Lázara, an interdisciplinary artist who has created a body of work that can feel both intimate and collective, plural yet consistent. The session takes place on Tuesday, May 23 at 8pm at our usual spot on Lietzenburger Straße 45, 10789 Berlin, Room 315, and will count with moderation by Prof. Kirsten Reese (UNI.K).


Hope to see you there, hope to see you soon.

Working with voice, the open, extended voice, taken to the scream. Before and after the word, in such a way  that its possibility of saying is in turn linked to the reflection of the unsaid. Starting from the voice then dealing with silence…what a body can do in the gesturally of speech, before speech, or, what it can say when it has been impossible to speak. Sometimes my work has been devoted to illness, to the sick voice, the affected, deceased voice, the voice of the abnormality and to the voice that is not allowed to speak, the silenced. An exploration that is far from musical, rather sonorous and in this sense explicitly physical and a game of bridges between spatial and corporeal resonances. In the voice resides capacity both to say in urgency  where the cry fits ad is demanded, as well as to say in the pause, at the moment of remembering, of beginning to regain strength, to begin to articulate a new word.


Bárbara Lázara, an artist whose work is dedicated to amplifying subjugated languages, archives of the body, and stolen memories. Her work spans across various media, including performance, music, writing, and video, and has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Mexico, the US, and the EU. She is a member of the DAAD Berliner Künstlerprogramm 2022/23 and belonged to the Sistema de Creadores de Arte de México from 2019 to 2022. Lázara is currently working on archival materials for the exhibition Sonora en el Silencio, which will showcase the artistic legacy of her great-grandmother, writer Olivia Zuñiga, and take place at the Museo Cabañas in 2023.
