The exhibition and educational project Soundscapes of Intersectional Encounters: Exploring Identity Through Sound deals with the production of sound – from popular and artistic music productions to oral narratives – which are identity-forming for diasporas and intersectional communities.

Popular and artistic sounds, music and narratives in particular are often representative of an imagined sense of togetherness. This encompasses far more than regional and mostly fictionalized particularities and contexts, – even though these sounds stand as binding and as self-understanding-generating for a larger group, a group that defines itself purely through media experiences rather than through real, verifiable biographical dependencies. Sound moments and soundscapes can often be perceived as an image of diaspora belonging and emancipation. These collaborative auto-ethnographic media forms, the independent categorization and description of group histories, differs greatly from the expected image of diaspora as a closed, regionally bound group of experiences. This exhibition project therefore aims to present narratives through digital media contributions that reflect the language of auto-ethnography and ultimately make it usable and understandable for a larger public. The aim is to create a pidginized exhibition space that will enlarge and grow audibly and visibly during the exhibition through the program and educational events.

    and talk with Janine Jembere

    Three teachers and educators, curators and artists: Janine Jembere, Zehra Baraçkılıç, and Ruby Sircar will talk about voices, sound, music, lyrics, creating audible texts and discussing the possibilities of teaching emotions as academic techniques and accepting didactics to be still colonized – how to change them? And is it possible to teach non-linear narratives?
