Bewegungen nach entfernten Orten

2. 9. – 7. 9.

With her special headphones, Christina Kubisch can detect electromagnetic fields that are normally hidden, amplify them and make them audible. The “Movements to Distant Places” installation consists of electromagnetic field recordings of transportation systems made during a trip through the northern Ruhr istrict in Germany. The Ruhrgebiet is a densely populated area of about 54 cities so close to each other that they almost seem to be one big megalopolis. Public transportation lines are essential to move between the cities: regional and high-speed trains, subways, busses and a complex network of highways. They emit a dense net of different sound layers. Kubisch acoustically reproduces this huge spider’s web in her multichannel installation.

This work was commissioned in the context of the project mapping the region for RUHR2010/European cultural capital 2010 by the sculpture museum of Marl and was presented there first in spring 2010.
