The exhibition and educational project Soundscapes of Intersectional Encounters: Exploring Identity Through Sound deals with the production of sound: from popular music productions to oral narratives that define identity for diasporas.

Media art and sounds often represent a particular imagined sense of belonging. This encompasses far more than regional and mostly fictionalised particularities and contexts, but rather stands as a binding and creating understanding for a larger group. A group that defines itself purely through media experiences and then through real, verifiable biographical dependencies. In this way, sound moments and soundscapes can be perceived as an image of diasporic belonging and emancipation. This collaborative and autoethnographic form of fabricating a common ground through media, the possibility to shape an independent classification and description of group history, differs greatly from the expected and majority social image of diaspora as a closed group of experiences, regionally bound. In the exhibition, therefore, narratives will emerge through the contributions, reflecting the language and emotions of autoethnography and ultimately making it usable and understandable for the public. A pidginised exhibition space will be created. A space that will constantly change and expand during the exhibition through the program and educational events.
