spoken… 1, 2 + 3


spoken versions 1, 2 + 3 was created for the exhibition The Embassy Reconstructed at the Nordic Embassies in Berlin as part of Transmediale 2013 BWPWAP

This sound work poses questions related to the notion of "internationalism". It relates to reoccurring periods dedicated to study mechanisms that are involved in nation-building, also involving making sculptures during the course of the process.

How does the formalized structure of communication between nations and head of states via embassies contain ideas of internationalism? How does it relate to a globalized world where the flow of things, money, ideas and ideals aims to be unbound? At the same time as the restrictions for persons to move are tighten. How are people included on a diplomatic level, who are the "we" and who are the "them"? The piece spoken versions 1, 2 + 3 composes a collage out of a series of interviews with employees at the Nordic Embassies, printed as a CD that was handed out during the exhibition.
