Robert Morris’ sculptural installation »Hearing« includes an audio recording of a fictitious hearing that is focussed on the aesthetic, political, historical and moral views of a »witness«. The work is taken as a point of departure. Investigations relating to the various issues involved will take works of other artists into consideration. »Hearing« appears today as a piece of literature. Gregor Stemmrich edited and commented »Hearing« by Robert Morris in english for the first time.
