Overview
The Force of Listening explores the role of listening at the intersection of contemporary art and activism, and asks what transformations listening might facilitate in the world. Written as a constructed dialogue, The Force of Listening draws from conversations with artists, activists and political thinkers which took place during 2013-14, in the aftermath of the wave of protests and occupations against austerity.
Artists Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, media theorist Nick Couldry, philosopher Adriana Cavarero and members of Ultra-red and Precarious Workers Brigade as well as feminist consciousness-raising groups meet on the page to tackle questions of listening, attention and interconnection, collectivity, solidarity and resonance, the politics of the voice and the ethics of listening, the challenges of institutional frameworks and their reflections on the Occupy movement.
