Dear friends of SoundS,


Sound informs us of the space around us. At the same time, sound constitutes space. In sound art, we understand space as a parameter of artistic creation. Architecture becomes fluid, musical forms seem to have sculptural qualities. 


The Master’s program Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the University Berlin is excited to inaugurate a long-term collaboration with the gallery Zwitschermachine. For three months every year, we will set up a project space to present and discuss, question and celebrate the work and ideas of our students and their guests. 


We are delighted to invite you to our first exhibition "Let there be Wifi", opening on January 23, 2019, 19:00.


Potsdamer Straße 161
10783 Berlin



The exhibition is organized by SoundS students under the supervision of Daisuke Ishida. "Let there be WiFi" explores how we perceive, perform and construct sound and culture in the post-Internet era. From the digitalization of radio to the Internet of Sound, sound has transformed into a screen based medium, introducing a new materiality, visibility, mobility, and interactivity. Freed from physical boundaries and institutions, this transformation allows for a new sonic landscape to emerge. In the context of post-Internet art, how do these developments influence sound art? How are these characteristics interpreted? How do we navigate, use and reflect on this new sounding space? Considering the Internet as more than a medium specific practice, the artists explore the socio-cultural effects and artistic possibilities of abolishing the delineations between online and offline space, and the ubiquity of the Internet.


Participating artists include Asil Alptekin, Jonathan Bruns, Nicolas Daleman, Eunice Fong, Kassiani Goulakou and Alejandro Mosso.
