SOUNDS OF OUR CITIES is a project based upon research and knowledge transfer between art, technology and social space. The resulting exhibitions include sound art projects developed in two cities, the Krottegem district in Roeselare (Belgium) and the Sant Andreu district in Barcelona, mounting a critical reflection upon cultural identity in relation to community and silence. Artistic practice is here understood as a means of combining active public involvement in collective creative processes, contextualised research, shared learning, knowledge exchange, and socialisation of processes and results. Based upon memories and remembrances, the projects, produced in on-site or remote residencies, offer a fictional landscape for other realities or experiences, other voices, new cities which are not so remote from the cartographic territories that we understand as real and existing.

What's behind that silence? It is the exhibition arising from Sounds of our citieswhich has been seen in Roeselare and Barcelona through an expanded exhibition with toursactivations and projections > More information
