In this episode of Radio ArtEZ, vocalist, movement artist and composer Elaine Mitchener offers background to her work and her ideas. She will focus on the unheard voices of statues, rooms, places. Who do monuments represent and who do they speak for?
She will introduce some original voices in philosophy and music that deserve more attention and will guide us into ideas of philosophers Fred Moten and Walter Benjamin about resistance and memory. Central to her conversation will be Benjamin’s concept and practice of memory: Eingedenken, that takes remembrance as an act of responsibility. How do we choose to remember? History is written by the victors, said Benjamin, and the consequences resonate for ages.
