CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: d14 Summer Intensive – School of Listening

Now I will do nothing but listen

I hear all sounds running together, combined,

fused or following,

Sounds of the city and sounds out of the city, sounds of the

day and night

(Walt Whitman)


d14 Summer Intensive School of Listening is a site of learning that includes listening sessions, sound walks, lectures, performances, screenings, and of course sound and music, housed in an ancient or contemporary ruin. During a ten-day program, guided by the questions: What Shifts? What Drifts? What Remains?, contributors to documenta 14 share their practices of listening in fields as diverse as architecture, composition, performance, and history. Sound pierces through the layers of time and reverberates in the present as we move through the city of Kassel. Students from Kunsthochschule Kassel, the Universität Kassel, Musikakademie Kassel, and the Athens School of Fine Arts are invited to apply!
