DJ Electric Indigo - European voices
Electric Indigo plays havoc with anthems: a live deconstruction of common property
Sat, 29 January 2005, 21.00
Concert, ZKM Foyer, admission €5/€3
[-> Information auf Deutsch]
Despite the dominance of the visual in the modern public arena the human voice can still be regarded as the medium of a democratic system, as is indicated by such terms as »having a voice« and »the voice of the people«. Only those who raise their voices become active. Only if individuals speak as one can they become an audible group.
In this concert the artist, Electric Indigo, arranges the national anthems of all the EU countries. She has asked her artist friends from the countries concerned to speak their national anthems and to take part in an electronic deconstruction.
