Das PhD-in-Practice-Programm der Akademie der bildenden Künste lädt herzlich zur Defensio von Hong-Kai Wangs Dissertation The Song Is Etched in Your Body: Listening for Unnamed Frequencies ein.

Mitglieder des Prüfungssenats sind: Mag. Dr. Moira Hille (Vorsitzende), Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Anette Baldauf (1. Betreuerin), Univ.-Prof. Dr. Renate Lorenz (2. Betreuerin) und Cathy Lane (externe Gutachterin, University of the Arts London).


In The Song Is Etched in Your Body: Listening for Unnamed Frequencies, I try to articulate the social and artistic processes developed from my recent projects Hazzeh (2019), Borom (2020), and fuengu (2021) by integrating multiple forms of writing including essay, diary, travelogue, listening score, and conversation. This dissertation anchors its inquiry firmly in the question of listening and the politics embedded in its perceptive corporeality. It chronicles the research trajectory that I embarked over the course of three years across Jordan and Palestine, Jeju Island (South Korea), and Psoseongana (Alishan, Taiwan), and how each project respectively unfolds in its specific historical geo-political context.


Hong-Kai Wang is an interdisciplinary artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. She works across exhibition making, performance, publication, and workshop that involve collective, pedagogical, and embodied practices of sociality.

Die Defensio wird in englischer Sprache und in Raum DG 6 stattfinden.

Wir freuen uns sehr, Sie bei der Defensio begrüßen zu dürfen.
