Acts of Voicing
Über die Poetiken und Politiken der Stimme / The Poetics and Politics of the Voice
»Acts of Voicing« focuses on the aesthetic, performative, and political significance of the voice, »viewed« from the perspective of visual art, dance, performance, and theory. The book, which also documents the exhibition of the same title that showed at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart and the Total Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul in 2012, explores the diegetic and performative characteristics of the voice. This relates equally to voices that resist and to voices that are disciplined and seek to discipline, to those that are heard and to those that go unheard. The book also examines the struggle to find one’s voice and the act of getting voices to speak or be silent.
