Oir es Ver-To Hear is to See-Hören ist Sehen

Art within the electronic space using the example of radio art and sound sculpture

The long-term project To Hear is to See, which is organised and curated by the artist Gue Schmidt, will be presented at RHIZOM in Granz as an Austrian Premiere, after having been to Columbia, Venezuela, Mexico and Turkey. 63 international artists from the most diverse areas of art are represented through their radio, photo and text works. Through a permanent process of enlargement new artists and their compositions will be included in the project which leads to the creation of an international, polyphone network.

With open ears we see reality through different eyes. In times and in a country where under the supervision of the government the word and the public picture has established itself as a weapon of daily political use, this continues to become more important.
