IIntervention in public space
Performative reading


15min

By Lukas Esser and 
Juan Pablo Gaviria Bedoya



Two people will develop a reading, which accompanied by the distribution of speakers along the place, will amplify the reading of fragments of the text: "On Touching - The Inhuman That Therefore I Am" by Karen Barad. These fragments have been chosen with the intention of elaborating a two-voice "monologue" in which the content of the text is reflected upon and a sound experience is proposed, through the performance, as an element of acoustic amplification and meaning of the metaphorical contents of the reading of the words.
