Can diplomacy be interpreted and presented in sonic form?
How is the act of conflict management interpreted through the arts?
What are the sonic characteristics of “the Embassy”?
The Embassy Reconstructed is an arts-based exploration of “the Embassy” as a phenomenon.
initiated by the Swedish artist Åsa Stjerna. Taking the contemporary arts’ expanded notion of space as its point of departure, six artists, whose artistic practices approach and address sound and spatiality from a vast range of perspectives, explore how sound as an artistic medium in its broadest form gives shape to, and interprets, an international, political space where highly current societal events are in constant negotiation.
